happenstance



"People may think
that we are wasting our time
lying around,
hiding underneath covers,
sharing secrets,
and stealing kisses.
But I don’t care.
So please continue
to kiss my lips,
my forehead,
and my cheeks,
because every minute
that I spend with you
makes me into a better,
happier version
of myself."

"The moment leading up
to a kiss—
when your heart
is beating so fast
that you think it will
fly out of your chest;
when it feels as if
you can hear the pounding of
your veins pumping blood
throughout every square inch
of your body;
and when you start
leaning in
and holding your breath
and are filled with a mixture
of fear and exhilaration."

"There are things
that I have never told
anyone at all.
But there is something about
the way you take my hand,
the way you remember
things that I say,
and the way you
talk about the world
that makes me want to
tell you the little things
that I keep to myself."

"I no longer
avoid mirrors
and break down
when I happen to look
into one for too long.
I no longer see myself as
a mess of pieces
that will never fit together.
Some days I still find it hard
to look at my reflection,
but then I remember all that
I put myself through
and all that I felt—
and I look into my eyes
and tell myself,
‘You are enough.’"
