when i am lonely for boys it’s their bodies i miss. i study their hands lifting the cigarettes … the slope of a shoulder, the angle of a hip. looking at them sideways, i examine them in different lights. my love for them is visual; that is the part of them i would like to possess. don’t move, i think. stay like that. let me have that.

In my dreams you’re alive and you’re crying
As your mouth moves in mine, soft and sweet
Rings of flowers around your eyes and I’ll love you
For the rest of your life.

Bluebeard, Kurt Vonnegut (via sarahnwrap)
