I have known her longer, my smile said. True, you have been inside the circle of her arms, tasted her mouth, felt the warmth of her and that is something I have never had. But there is a part of her that is only for me. You cannot touch it, no matter how hard you might try. And after she has left you I will still be here, making her laugh. My light shining in her. I will still be here long after she has forgotten your name.
"I brake for birds. I rock a lot of polka dots. I have touched glitter in the last 24 hours. I spend my entire day talking to children and I find it fundamentally strange that you’re not a dessert person…and that doesn’t mean I’m not smart and tough and strong.”
