you know, one day my composition of the written language will be appreciated and regarded as art. I just fear it will be long after my flesh is gone and all that remains of me are my bones.
When someone emotionally hurts you but you have to act like you don’t care.
It’s often said, “sexuality is fluid,” but that doesn’t stop our institutions implementing not only social, but political policies that police the many ways we love and consummate relationships. We have all become so accustomed to polarizing gender binaries that any form of consensual attraction that is not heterosexual and vanilla is automatically considered deviant.
The reality is, given the quote above, there is no absolute form of orientation that cements our sexual desires in concrete. Love is infinite, yet attraction is transitory, and it streams from the core of our beings. We tend to forget that we are human creatures first before we are assigned a gender role. There is nothing in the law of the universe that measures the vast heap of our devotion to one another, and so to live in a world that puts worth on one sexual orientation and draws a line at which end you must choose (either heterosexuality or homosexuality; a polarization just as rigid as gender binaries) only confines our ability to express the one emotion that can save us all: love.
There is no rhyme or reason, nor logic that can be applied to how we love; we just do. It’s an instinct we feel the minute it happens and it can happen with anyone, doesn’t matter how you define yourself. This is the true nature of our hominid existence, the very innate, deep-seated axiom to who we are as a civilization. We are an essence of time that which moves in a brief yet eternal surge. We are aqueous, unbroken expressions of passion. To criminalize or punish such fluidity is to corrupt our very own humanity. Love is kind, love is patient, and real, no matter the presentation."
