“I needed you to love me darker because I was too light; I was floating away.
I needed the shadow of your body to stretch across the cracked pavement at dusk and line the bottoms of my feet with thick black courage; I was empty.
I needed the air that came from your mouth when you told me things I didn’t want to hear; you told me the truth about myself and how I was blind to myself and numb to myself and I needed your breath to catch in my hair and sweep it out of my tear-streaked face and wake me up.
I was cold, so cold, and I needed the warmth that burst from your fingertips and only yours; I was frozen in an iceblock of pain and I was begging you to thaw me but I didn’t know how to ask without showing you my blood.”
