I want to feel like this
I should have never walked away from you at that airport.
Some nights I paint my nails black and listen to The Racer and drink out of newly purchased mugs and think about how I wish all your sad blog posts were about me or how Her really fucked me up because the way Theodore laughed and spoke when he was drunk is the same way you do and i miss that but also how every time I eat french toast I think of him and how he promised to make me eggs in a basket on my birthday but instead he made me cinnamon rolls and I couldn’t finish mine because I loved him too much.
Most days my opinion on marriage is “hell fuckin no” but then after all this time I realized you’re someone who could have changed that.
Fuck you for that.
Ever since we first heard of Richard Saja, we’ve had a hawkeye out for any other brilliant embroidery who are breathing innovation into the toil.
Siobhán Barbour is a Northern Irish embroiderer whose work consists of an ideal mixture of talent, quirk, and extraordinary expertise.
Those embroidery skills though.
We talked about grapefruit and Florida and music and beer and fancy bars and how things have changed over the past three years. And I was playful like I used to be and you pulled my scarf to bring me closer and I toyed with the edge of your jeans on your hip and we held hands like that’s how it should have been all along.
I know you wanted me, expected me, to stay by the way you turned all the lights off but I held your hand while you began to sleep and cried and told you how I loved you and that I was sorry for things that aren’t my fault and you made gentle noises in your sleep and moved your fingers between mine.
But then I left and went back to an empty apartment because that’s what I’ve done since that day in August when you kissed me goodbye. And the next day I was high in the air after a long drive, still thinking I could convince you to start eating grapefruit for breakfast.
Some nights you drive around to clear your head and all it does is make you realize you’re still forever second best.
