I was waiting for the longest time, she said. I thought you forgot.
It is hard to forget, I said, when there is such an empty space when you are gone.

Humanity is an ocean, each person a bubble, appearing, disappearing, and reappearing on its turn

and

With suddenness, under an immemorial canopy of shifting clouds, two bodies fuse their heat to create love’s birth.

Structural dissatisfaction: Returning to circumstances that once pleased you, after having experienced a more thrilling or opulent way of life, and finding that you can no longer tolerate them.

Fear is the cheapest room in the house. I’d like to see you living in better conditions.

Only then does he realize what he has done to Mirabelle, how wanting a square inch of her and not all of her has damaged them both, and how he cannot justify his actions except that, well, it was life.

You picked a lemon, throw it away lemonade is overrated. Freaks should remain at the circus, not in your apartment. You already have one asshole. You don’t need another. Make a space in your life for the glorious things you deserve. Have faith.

this is the story of your red right ankle
and how it came to meet your leg
and how the muscle bone and sinews tangled
and how the skin was softly shaped
and how it whispered ‘oh, adhere to me
for we are bound by symmetry
and whatever differences our lives have been
we together make a limb
this is the story of your red right ankle

Grab that weird-looking vegetable at the market. Flip one more page. Say “yes” (or maybe just a nervous “okay”). Take your bend one step further. Shoot that text. Book a trip to the unknown.
