Over the years, I’ve had a series of fantasy crushes. Like love poems I share with dear ones, they’re tinged with longing for something. In the spirit of avoiding a photo collage of my cat, here’s a collage of snippets from such a period of my life.
Fall in love and tell me all about them. Get engaged. Get married. Live happily ever after. I want an invitation to witness a good life. I’ll beam every minute. This wasn’t my first go at any of this and I won’t be sad long.

Be madly in love with me and all I need. I want to hear you knock on my door tomorrow so we can discuss our value systems and how we negotiate navigating every comittment.

What if love languages are just how we should be approaching communication? If the spectrum of polyamory is loving everyone with higher intent? Everyone was right about my spots.
Each answer terrifies and breaks me.
The question isn’t “love?” it’s “in love?”
