My thing

When I’m drunk I always re-read our conversation, it's like my thing. It makes me remember that time when I was on mdma, walking around in Berlin and it suddenly started to rain and for a second I laughed at it, as I felt like you were with me.

Paris

Paris smells like you.

I sometimes wish it didn’t though. Like,

Sometimes would be easier if I just hadn’t met you, easier like, “Paris smells like pee”.

But I met you, and you smell like hopes and dreams and everything Disney has ever shown to me. And so does Paris.

Farewells

Yesterday Sebas left. Every time it hurts a little bit less, the farewells I mean. Not because I’m suddenly made of stone, on the contrary, every time I become more permeable to love -To receive, without questioning-

You were my first — functional —bikecycle because before Pancha there were two Rositas and one Mario but none of them generated in me the interest needed in order to learn how to pedal.

Want(ed)

I wanted to be that mischievous laugh printed on your face, the sort of smile that lasts from the time you stop watching your cell phone screen until you reach the street corner.
I wanted to be the first pinch of the digestive cigarette and the Chinese market that you had around your house, the one that always saved you from starving because it closed at half past eleven at night.

Self-Hugging

Not for anything I always preferred to disappear than to be forgotten. Being the one who left was never as tragic as being the one that never came.
