In case you think that all of this is easy you are fooling yourself
Let this be hard. It is not a pebble in the shoe. It is the foot itself. It is big.
I want you to know and anyone else asking that this love is one of the best trips I’ve taken. I have seen the world through your eyes and I am grateful. And to acknowledge that is to offer a kindness, however complicated (thank you Miriam). I do not need to forget that some of my best self is here because of you.
I will always know that. I will let it build a home on my collarbone and live there as I type.
