kissing is so erotic? loving gaze is so erotic? slow dancing in the ambience of candlelight with smiles on your faces is so erotic? the more i remove myself from sex, the more i indulge in the inherent eroticism of other forms of physical touch, sometimes even the absence of them
So often, we blame our lovers; we don’t blame our view of love. And so we keep sacking our lovers and blowing up relationships, in pursuit of this idea of love which actually has no basis in reality. It’s simply not rooted in anything we know.
I hope you all find yourselves sleeping with someone you love, maybe not all of the time, but a lot of the time. The touch of a foot in the night is sincere. I hope you like your work, I hope there’s mystery and poetry in your life — not even poems, but patterns. I hope you can see them. Often those patterns will wake you up, and you will know that you are alive, again and again.
