The Circle, Triangle, Square









If you've got the time, we can play a game. It’s easy. We just see if I’m the same shape as the space you have inside you. If everything fits, we both win. If it doesn’t, don’t force it. That's how you get splinters in your heart.

Exactly... it's either win-win or lose-lose.

My shape is complicated. And it likes to change almost constantly. Just like somebody else's, hopefully.

I've given up on my shape.

Even with splinters you can love the shape, just tread lightly.

I need the courage to point this post to my crush.

I love it when we change in tandem. Our shapes always morph, sometimes slowly, with luxury, sometimes with explosive passion. More often than not, though, it's with perfect synchronization.

We knew it the moment we had that dance-off.

Yes, I am also too afraid to take that leap and now that gap looks even bigger. The silence between us is sometimes just so daunting when all I really want to do is shout, "I LIKE YOU!"

omg :,(

otherwise said...

yes, sometimes its okay if there's a mismatch. some of the best things in life those awkward things that refuse to fit themselves into anything

Pinkhairgirl said...

anon - what is wrong with it being sexual? I think that a sexual 'fit' is very important. But on a more general level some people just fit into your life better than others

Penny Lane said...

Amanda Marie said...

Definitely the motto for my life right now. Thanks!

mine isn't much of a shape anymore. it's too splintered to have one.

I've gotten too many splinters. Will you try to fit into the shape of my heart without forcing yourself into it?

I hope our shapes are still forming..
