I’ve been told,
that there are people who dive into happiness, without dipping their toes in first, who don’t fear that the water’s too cold, or that the bottom is too close to the surface, they don’t fear cutting their skin on the rocks, because they’ve never felt their hearts bleed, and;
I’ve been told,
that there are people who don’t turn words over, and over, and over in their head, who don’t spin them for meanings not meant, meanings unimagined, who don’t dissect them, who don’t try to turn love into science projects, and;
I’ve been told,
that there are people who kiss with their eyes closed, always, always and forever and they believe that forever is a time measure not a lie we tell each other when we get scared of being lonely, forever, and;
I’ve been told,
that there are people who hold hands without glancing down at them every few seconds to make sure that they’re still touching, that they’re still linked, who aren’t afraid that their mind is lying to them, that their own brain is trying to protect them, and;
I’ve been told,
that there are people who who don’t have tears in their eyes, whether it’s too light or too dark, there are people who can stare at the sun and not blink, who can feel warmth on their skin without burning;
I’ve been told,
but I don’t know, I’ve never met a person like that; my mother tried to dive into life and nearly drowned and my father wears thick shades, he sees no light and no darkness, and every boy that’s ever kissed me kept his eyes wide open, they never even blinked;
I’ve been told,
but all I know is burning and not warmth.

There’s nothing more I can add to this. It’s already perfect.
