“I don’t kiss your neck because
that’s what the girls who don’t
know your last name do. Instead
I kiss your wrist, I pull your hair
too hard, I hold the back of your
head when you curl into my
chest in your sleep. I’m not one
of them. I know the things you
hate about yourself; I know exactly
the things I could say if I wanted
to break you. But I don’t. I kiss you
slowly and don’t put my tongue in
your mouth. I leave your bed salty
but with no lasting teeth marks.”

“I love you more than my own skin and even though you don’t love me the same way, you love me anyways, don’t you? And if you don’t, I’ll always have the hope that you do, and i’m satisfied with that. Love me a little. I adore you.”
