He’s Nice Enough

Just because he’s nice doesn’t mean he’s right for you.

Granola is nice, but your senses don’t crave it.

Tap water is not a substitute for champagne.

Tap water is fine.  Some people don’t drink, and yes, tap water will quench your parched mouth.  But as it meets your tongue, you will wonder about champagne.

My darling, even if he is the most beautiful shade of taupe all of Sherwin-Williams has to offer,  your eyes illuminate for only the boldest reds.

Quit convincing yourself that you can make lanterns from lightless bodies;

That you will be less lonely lying next to a lightless body;

That you can settle yourself out of all the things you want.

 

Desire will not die as neatly as the white linens you fold them.
