so, i saw d’angelo in concert yesterday. and i have reached the conclusion that it must really suck to be a man and not be d’angelo. 

also, i joke about swooning all the time, but i genuinely swooned, and could not have told you my own name during any part of that performance.

I should be crying but I just can’t let it show. I should be hoping but I can’t stop thinking. All the things we should have said that I never said. All the things we should have done that we never did. All the things we should have given but I didn’t.

You are the beautiful distress of mathematics. For you I would peel open the clouds like new fruit and give you lightening and thunder as a dowry. I would make the sky shed all of its stars, light and rain and I would clasp the constellations across your waist and I would make the heavens your cape and they would be pleased to cover you. They would be pleased to cover you. May I please cover you?
