When Love Arrives by Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye

I knew exactly what love looked like – in seventh grade

Even though I hadn’t met love yet, if love had wandered into my homeroom, I would’ve recognized him at first glance. Love wore a hemp necklace.
I would’ve recognized her at first glance, love wore a tight french braid.
Love played acoustic guitar and knew all my favorite Beatles songs.
Love wasn’t afraid to ride the bus with me.
And I knew, I just must be searching the wrong classrooms, just must be checking the wrong hallways, she was there, I was sure of it.
If only I could find him.

But when love finally showed up, she had a bow cut.
He wore the same clothes every day for a week.
Love hated the bus.
Love didn’t know anything about The Beatles.
Instead, every time I try to kiss love, our teeth got in the way.
Love became the reason I lied to my parents. I’m going to- Ben’s house.
Love had terrible rhythm on the dance floor, but made sure we never missed a slow song.
Love waited by the phone because she knew if her father picked up it would be: “Hello? Hello? I guess they hung up.”

And love grew, stretched like a trampoline.
Love changed. Love disappeared,
Slowly, like baby teeth, losing parts of me I thought I needed.
Love vanished like an amateur magician, and everyone could see the trapdoor but me.
Like a flat tire, there were other places I planned on going, but my plans didn’t matter.
Love stayed away for years, and when love finally reappeared, I barely recognized him.
Love smelt different now, had darker eyes, a broader back, love came with freckles I didn’t recognize.
New birthmarks, a softer voice.
Now there were new sleeping patterns, new favorite books.
Love had songs that reminded him of someone else, songs love didn’t like to listen to. So did I.

But we found a park bench that fit us perfectly
We found jokes that make us laugh.
And now, love makes me fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies.
But love will probably finish most of them for a midnight snack.
Love looks great in lingerie but still likes to wear her retainer.
Love is a terrible driver, but a great navigator.
Love knows where she’s going, it just might take her two hours longer than she planned.
Love is messier now, not as simple.
Love uses the words “boobs” in front of my parents.
Love chews too loud.
Love leaves the cap off the toothpaste.
Love uses smiley faces in her text messages.
And turns out, love shits!

But love also cries.
And love will tell you you are beautiful and mean it, over and over again. “You are beautiful.”
When you first wake up, “you are beautiful.”
When you’ve just been crying, “you are beautiful.”
When you don’t want to hear it, “you are beautiful.”
When you don’t believe it, “you are beautiful.”
When nobody else will tell you, “you are beautiful.”
Love still thinks you are beautiful.
But love is not perfect and will sometimes forget, when you need to hear it most, you are beautiful, do not forget this.

Love is not who you were expecting, love is not who you can predict.
Maybe love is in New York City, already asleep;
You are in California, Australia, wide awake.
Maybe love is always in the wrong time zone.
Maybe love is not ready for you.
Maybe you are not ready for love.
Maybe love just isn’t the marrying type.
Maybe the next time you see love is twenty years after the divorce, love is older now, but just as beautiful as you remembered.
Maybe love is only there for a month.
Maybe love is there for every firework, every birthday party, every hospital visit.
Maybe love stays- maybe love can’t.
Maybe love shouldn’t.

Love arrives exactly when love is supposed to,
And love leaves exactly when love must.
When love arrives, say, “Welcome. Make yourself comfortable.”
If love leaves, ask her to leave the door open behind her.
Turn off the music, listen to the quiet, whisper,
“Thank you for stopping by.”

... si iti multumesc

Nu ti-am inteles absenta. Nu ti-am cunoscut prezenta. Surd ai fost rugamintilor mele si mut te-au gasit dorintele mele. Ai secatuit pana cand m-ai transfigurat. Ai luat pana cand m-ai lasat a nimanui... Si iti multumesc!

Acum am inteles sa iti fiu recunoscatoare. Fara durerea ce atunci ai sadit-o in mine nu ar fi rasarit nicicand cea care astazi stie. Am invatat sa ma tin completa in lipsa oricui, pentru ca oricum imi apartin mie in totalitate. Am putut sa ma intregesc prin mine si cu mine, in strigate infundate in perne noaptea, in lacrimi siroaie dimineata, in dupa-amiezi lipsite de vlaga. Pana cand in acea zi, neasteptata, dar indelung ceruta, m-am privit in oglinda si am hotarat sa ma opresc si sa incep sa ma iubesc. Mi-am privit ochii grei de atatea nevazute si am inteles ca sunt frumosi, ca merita lumina, nu intuneric. Nu mai eram o straina, nu mai fugeam de mine. Ma recunosteam, in sfarsit. Eram eu in spatelel tuturor schimbarilor fizicie, eram mai autentica decat am vazut pan…

Efeminarea barbatului

Nu stiu ce-or pune astia in mancare, de la o vreme incoace, dar simt ca e prea mare cantitatea de estrogen pe care o ingereaza urmasii lui Adam. Nu voi vorbi despre "fashion" sau mersul la cosmetica, mi se pare ca aici ne raportam la bun-gust si sfidarea ridicolului - o balanta care, daca stii sa o tii in echilibru, iti subliniaza masculinitatea, in niciun caz nu ti-o anuleaza.

Eu la comportament observ dereglari hormonale. Acum, ei asteapta sa fie curtati, invitati si vanati. Au cam apus zilele in care rolul decisiv al cuceritorului era jucat de El. Cati mai stiu sa ia fraiele din mana femeii si sa isi asume rolul de conducator, in timp ce ea are responsabilitatea de a-i fi copilot? Sa ii deschizi portiera. Sa o ajuti sa isi dea haina jos, cand sunteti intr-un local. Sa ii tragi scaunul ca sa se aseze la masa, nu sa cada. Sa o intrebi ce vrea sa isi comande si sa vorbestu tu cu ospatarul. Sa ii tii usa deschisa la plecare, dar sa stii ca tu intri primul. Sa ii saruti mana …

Ca intotdeauna despre noi

Iubeste-ma inca o data. Inca o noapte. Inca o viata. Inca pe atat. Inca si acum. Iubeste-ma fara sa stiu de ce, fara sa intreb de cand, fara sa stiu pe unde ma poate duce felul tau de-a fi.

De-am sti ce ne aduce soarta sa ne prefacem ca putem sa tragem galaxiile mai aproape, sa aprindem stelele ziua pe cer. Sa ma imbratisezi ca atunci, ca nicicand, ca oricand. Sa ma saruti ca niciodata. Sa te privesc la fel, mereu.

Mi-e drag, iubitul meu, sa-ti simt buzele cum ma infierbanta si mainile cum ma aprind. Ti-as spune tot ce nu pot pronunta. As scrie litere neinventate. M-as desfasura pe pielea ta.

Mi-e pofta sa iti simt parfumul. Adorm cu rasuflarea ta. Te stiu si ma simt linistita. Te ating si ma prefac in noi. Ma dizolv si ma dezvolt pe conjugari distincte. Invat pluralul dintr-o uniune sacra.

Prin tine, acum, ma vad mai bine. In ochii tai se oglindeste intreg sufletul meu. Zambesc si iti sunt fericita. Cu tine stiu, astazi, cum se traieste viata in doi. - MSZ
