Somewhere in the last few posts I wrote, “I don’t think you want me to love you.” After which it then dawned on me that that is what I feel. That I don’t think you want me to love you. That somehow, this all got started and you thought you’d wanted something but perhaps… Who knows.

I tried to ignore it. Not because I didn’t want it. Not because I knew it would be so dear to me, but because I knew that if I let you in, that far and you left, like everyone else, I would be so broken. I chose others. I let others in. Now that I think about it, it was because I needed to see…
M: All at once you want them and you don’t. T: That sounds like a very confusing place to be. M: It’s practically as bad as all at once being so sure you exist, and being completely convinced that you’re not real at all. You feel like your soul might actually split in two to accomodate the competition between the ideas; to keep you from being destroyed.
M: It’s this confusing place where you’re all at once happy that you met them and completely pissed that you did. T: Why? M: Because it may have been painful at times to be alone, but the risk was smaller. Because they’re precisely what I want except that the future has already been delimited to an extent that there isn’t much point in hoping for it. Because I’m...

One paradigm shift at a time, please! Loving someone on top of the end of college is freaking me out as is… no more.
between school, finishing up some stuff at the museum, work with student groups, and my personal life I’m probably going to be abandoning this for a little bit this term.
Who knew that it would be so simple as opening yourself up to being loved? Who knew that all it took was me allowing the possibility to find you? I expected it to be so much more difficult that this has knocked me right off my feet and left me feeling a bit unsure about standing up again. But you are so good, and to love you and be loved by you creates such happiness.
