Once, I confused my own hand
with desire,
once I held it there
until it promised love –
it couldn’t possibly get better –
until I realized

I’d rather cry
or take a long bath
alone in the house.

Doesn’t it seem
the more thoroughly we wash
the more we stink,
our bodies refuse
to trade in
their own damaged coats —
that even a moment
can take more
than all we’ve got.

— Dzvinia Orlowsky, Letter To Myself (via violentwavesofemotion)
