    he only loved me when I was on my knees and he loved me so much that he put down pillows for me and held my hair back and sometimes, if my mouth was tired he loved me enough to turn me over like a coin and taste sweet metal in the heat of my hips I heard the whispered I love yous in the...

    I reached below his belt raised an eyebrow at his weakness “I can’t help it” he laughed “when a beautiful girl is in my bed” and he kissed me all over that is the thing that will be hardest to swallow when his bed belongs to another girl and he is kissing her all over...

    I’m not sure if I will ever love you but I am sure that I will grow to love the way you lean far over whatever it is that you’re reading and the way your green eyes look when the sun is in them and how they melt into something soft and comfortable when they look up at me and I will grow...

    We took the rum behind the bleachers and we took turns sipping from the bottle and then wincing.
