you know me well - nina lacour & david levithan

“‘happy first pride, wyatt,” i say solemnly.

‘thanks,’ he says.

hiding and denying and being afraid is no way to treat love. love demands bravery. no matter the occasion, love expects us to rise, and with that in mind i check my phone.

‘boys,’ i say. ‘we have a party to attend’“

Tal vez hay algo que tienes miedo de decir , o alguien a quien tengas miedo de amar, o un lugar al que tienes miedo de ir. Te va a doler. Te va a doler porque importa.
—  Will Grayson, Will Grayson de John Green y David Levithan.
Even when I detach, I care. You can be separate from a thing and still care about it. If I wanted to detach completely, I would move my body away. I would stop the conversation midsentence. I would leave the bed. Instead, I hover over it for a second. I glance off in another direction. But I always glance back at you.
—  David Levithan
