Tonight I hung out with several of my dearest friends, some of whom I hadn’t seen for over seven months. I’m very grateful for them, always, because even though these past two weeks have been particularly cruel, things will unfailingly be alright when I am with them. Without even trying, it seems, they help me to forget things that, when I’m alone, haunt and drive me to self-injury. Living on two opposite ends of the country at once has unfortunately given me an sense of displacement and a very vague and uncomfortable idea of home, but tonight was something familiar, both uplifting and grounding.
It’s difficult to see them often because we’re scattered all across the country and at times across the entire globe, but that makes being with them even more precious and necessary.
And I don’t even try to
Understand but I know that I want you
And if it’s only tonight, it’s alright with me
