almost a year, and i’m finally getting around to replying letters. listening to this song. finding my way back to skin divers. taking time in the morning to slowly, very slowly, spread jam onto toast. afternoon sun hitting the skin just underneath my chin. thinking of picking flowers, maybe. buying a new parchment-paper journal to rip out pages from. sending out bits of myself across borders and oceans, imagining the envelope moving from one pair of hands to another, and another, and another. imagining someone squinting, frowning a little, trying to decipher the scrawl of my handwriting, the words with missing letters or letters squashed into one another. mm, september. there’s still time to breathe slow.

A lot of people complain about the night, and how lonely they feel inside their bed. But that’s not how it works for me. I notice I’m lonely at 9 am. When the sun wakes me up and everything is silent around me. I notice I’m lonely at 1 pm. When I walk down the street knowing I have no one to go visit. I notice I’m lonely at 3 pm. When I draw on my yellow paper knowing there’s no one to say “This drawing is from me to you. I think about you a lot. ” I notice I’m lonely at 6 pm. When I look in the mirror and my body is untouched. There’s no sign of someone else living, touching, breathing my body. It makes me sad thinking how much love I’m willing to give and it’s all going wasted because after all, maybe some people aren’t made to be with someone.
