I am my own.
"I don’t want a pillow I want your moving breathing flesh. I want you to hold my hand in the dark, I want to roll on to you and push myself into you."
Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body
Come to me without a past. Those lines you learned, forget them.
Forget that you’ve been here before in other bedrooms in other places. Come to me new.
Never say you love until that day when you have proved it.
Written On The Body, Jeanette Winterson (via loveisaquotation)
You never give away your heart; you lend it from time to time. If it were not so how could we take it back without asking?

What kills love? Only this: Neglect. Not to see you when you stand before me. Not to think of you in the little things. Not to make the road wide for you, the table spread for you. To choose you out of habit not desire, to pass the flower seller without a thought. To leave the dishes unwashed, the bed unmade, to ignore you in the mornings, make use of you at night. To crave another while pecking your cheek. To say your name without hearing it, to assume it is mine to call.

In silence and in darkness we loved each other and as I traced her bones with my palm I wondered what time would do to skin that was so new to me. Could I ever feel any less for this body? Why does ardour pass? Time that withers you will wither me. We will fall like ripe fruit and roll own the grass together. Dear friend, let me lie beside you watching the clouds until the earth covers us and we are gone.
Jeanette Winterson, “Written on the Body” (via lifeinpoetry)
Cheating is easy. That’s no swank to infidelity. To borrow against the trust someone has placed in you costs nothing at first. You get away with it, you take a little more and a little more until there is no more to draw on. Oddly, your hands should be full with all that taking but when you open them there’s nothing there.
