don’t mistreat people who are sincerely kind
don’t use them for their generosity
and for fuck’s sake don’t take them for granted expecting them to always be there because they’re nice
good-natured people can be worn down so much that even they can become jaded
treat these people right
let’s spend our week nights eating cereal on the floor
when there is a perfectly fine table behind us.
we can go to the movies and sit in the back row
just to make out like kids falling in love for the first time.
we’ll paint the rooms of our house
and get more paint on us than the walls.
we can hold hands and go to parties we end up
ditching to drink wine out of the bottle in the bathtub.
and slow dance with me in our bedroom
with an unmade bed and candles on the nightstand.
let me love you forever.
I’m so demanding like I don’t want just love, I want an all consuming physical and spiritual movement that shakes you all the way from your toes to your ribs. I want you to be consumed and desperate and needy and I want you to want me at whatever time at night and I want you to text me when that happens so I can know I did that to you. I want you to send me links to songs that remind you of me and for you to want my attention as much as I want yours and to not play small half assed games like playing hard to get because that stuff is just so boring when all you need is to be with someone simply and cleanly. I want you to run your hands through your hair and roll your eyes and say things like “well, you’re under my skin now, there’s no pulling you out.”
