Quotes of the day #163

I tried to leave

many times


as soon as I got away

my lungs buckled

under the pressure

Panting for air

I’d return


This is why

I let you

skin me to the bone


was better than


Having you touch me

even if it was not kind

was better than

not having your hands at all

I could take the abuse

I could not take the absence

I knew I was beating a dead thing


Did it matter?

If the thing was dead

when at the very least

I had it
