i thought i loved a boy once.
but the butterflies were something
akin to fear
and his eyes would not meet mine
and i let the terror sweep down my cheeks
with water in the drain
like blood in a
and held my breath.
i thought i could love you once.
we talked about the stars and how
you’d hold me and
the nights weren’t actually so big
because this rock is so small,
but i’m not sure it’s small enough
to hold something so fragile
as our love
and not break it.
still, i hold my breath.
but i like to think that i don’t need
a cliff to dive from or a pocket of stars
to throw away,
because the cliffs are in my bones
and the stardust lives in my chest
and i’ll be okay.
and you’ll be okay.
i hold my breath.
why’d we have to color so much in school. it didnt teach us anything. is “staying in the lines” a subconscious metaphor for not revolting against the bourgeoisie

❝ Your voice sounds completely different in different languages. It alters your personality somehow. I don’t think people get the same feeling from you. The rhythm changes. Because the rhythm of the language is different, it changes your inner rhythm and that changes how you process everything.
When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself. I often find when looking at people who are comfortable in many languages, they’re more comfortable talking about emotional stuff in a certain language or political stuff in another and that’s really interesting, how people relate to those languages.
