I feel like when I kiss you -
- and I will kiss you,
You’ll taste just like summer,
like my youth,
Like all the things I want to do,
all the things I’ve seen so far.
I can’t wait to finish work so I can go and sit in my friends backyard, drink wine and forget about everything.
"I meet a person, and in my mind I’m saying three minutes; I give you three minutes to show me the spark."
"We love each other like brutes. Gorgeously
and twilled. Any geography is hard. The skin
ends where skin ends.
It’s mapless. I want to be borrowed, to be
assembled, again. To feel a tug on the other
side of the string."
I haven’t sat in someone’s car and just talked to them in ages. It made feel like I was 17 again driving along country roads in Virginia Beach.
I love being able to talk and laugh with someone for hours. Next thing you know, it’s early in the AM.
^ this makes me genuinely happy. It had been a long time since I’d sat for hours just talking to someone about nothing and everything at the same time. It was worth getting barely any sleep to enjoy the simple pleasures with this great human.
"So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide"
"I missed you even when I was with you. That’s been my problem. I miss what I already have, and I surround myself with things that are missing."
I had such a good time in Tasmania. It’s important to get away, to breathe different air.
I visited an art gallery I have wanted to go to for so long, I saw one of my favorite musicians, I drank good coffee and had great conversations.
I have decided I want to go back there next year, hire a car, drive the entire state, climb mountains and walk through forests.
I am now snuggled back in my bed in Melbourne, and it feels like home, as always. I just don’t ever think I’ll get over my need to escape.
Oh yeah, which literary theories do you write about? I just finished a thesis on Geoffrey Chaucer's poetry, and at the moment I'm putting together a proposal for something involving 15th century chivalric romance. I also write fiction and publish it on Amazon.
Oh! Amazing! What was the thesis for? My honours thesis used psychoanalysis and feminist theory. My PhD is obviously a lot more full on, but I’m mainly using feminist theory and media theory. It’s exciting :)
What kind of things do you publish? I’ll chuck them a read!
"I already said too much. I already shared too much, and I want all my secrets back. I hate getting close to people these days, I always regret sharing too much, caring too much, doing too much, feeling too much."
