I want to sleep on your lap want to sleep on your lower half while it’s not doing anything at all
I want to
I want to rest on your shoulder rest my head on your shoulder while you read and i dream for a while. I want to kiss you goodnight and good morning and good warning and good knowing you. I want to be the lifted weight that you need while you love while you wish for some giant accomplishment that does not expect you to be perfect.

I’m not sure what to tell you. Maybe that it’s going to be okay? But, that’s a bit of a white lie because I’m not actually sure if it’s going to be okay… Maybe that I love you? That usually feels good to hear, unless it’s someone professing something that you do not, in fact, reciprocate. Um… You’re going to do great. You’re going to be strong. You’re going to show this whole… situation… who is BOSS. You! You’re boss. I love you? It’s going to be okay? I don’t know. I’m bad when it comes to giving advice, I really am, I just… Here’s what I’ll say. You are probably the strongest human I have ever met. If anyone can face this, it’s you.

from the Crazy8s postcard

When I was seven I wanted a hamster so bad
that I would write notes to my mother
leave them tucked under her pillow
I don’t know why I chose a hamster to want
I am terrified of rodents
I did.
It eventually passed
I forgot about my wanting
Oh to be seven again.
