“In all these years, you never believed I loved you. And I did. I did so much. I did love you. I even loved your hate and your hardness.”

“I keep telling you ‘I love you’
and it comes out as an apology.
I’m sorry. You want it to be bolder, bigger, less pathetic.
‘Love’ has become a fighting word for us.
You argue that you love me more. I don’t object.
I turn over in bed, sob into the pillow, pity myself.
I mumble it back to you because you
like the way it sounds coming out of my mouth.
We’ve turned caring for each other into a duty dance
that’s cheapened ‘love.’
It has become another way of apologizing
as you roll your eyes and say, ‘Sorry, I forgot to buy milk’,
a habit with every evening’s, ‘Night, love you too’,
a promise we keep breaking:
‘Of course I won’t, I love you’,
a lie.
It hits me that we no longer know what it means
when you slap me across the face and instantly,
I tell you I love you. I can’t help it.
I have spent months associating it with this much pain.
My insides are bullet-holed basins where the past goes to die.
I feel death when you stand close.
Stay away from me.
I love you.”
— Lora Mathis, “We Need a New Word for ‘Love,’ It’s Overused” (via oofpoetry)

Can we just take a moment to talk about how much respect I have for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt for allowing their daughter Shiloh to dress and look like a boy because that’s what she wants? These high profile, constantly being watched by the world people, are letting their daughter express herself exactly how she wants - even though it goes against EVERY hetero-normative social norm. 

People always joke about how many kids they have, but you know what? They know how to be good parents, so I am glad they are raising lots of little people.
