Girl vs. Whale: Thoughts: Alpine Style →
People will love the softest parts of you—the weird stories and the strange life and the unconventional thoughts and how you feel so much about everything. They will curl around those parts of you, cling to the easiest parts in hopes that there is nothing more. They hope you are uncomplicated,…
"I am in love with the man who makes my morning lattes. We’ve never spoken but I know his voice. He sings to me on the early train that carries me into the city. His dark features are shaded in the dim light of the coffee bar but I know him. And I love him. I’m in love with the man who makes my morning lattes. I wonder if he loves me, too."
"And then my soul saw you and it kind of went, ‘Oh, there you are. I’ve been looking for you’."
Girl vs. Whale: The Midas Touch →
I am a difficult woman—
a twisted sheet at 3 am.
I’m sorry I don’t love straight or wide,
everything about me has grown narrow—

i’ve noticed the hiss in the wind
when your body isn’t beside me
the voices of men rumble & echo in my ears
when your frame doesn’t cover me

the way the weight of your arm around my shoulder
felt like warm armor
i’d be lying if i said it wasn’t nice
to have someone to lean on
even if it was only for a few blocks
