mango rose

falling in love as an aromantic

there are some people who, when you first meet them, there’s just something about them that draws you in

something colorful and bright and exciting and dazzling like fireworks, but also warm and soft and gentle and fuzzy like a kitten

and you just know from the start that you want them to be a part of you and your life for as long as you’re living it

(deep breath)

that’s how i feel about you

and i’ve been trying to hold back this flood of my affections for fear that i’m too intense and that we will be swept away, separated, drowned, left for dead in an ocean of amatonormativity that says this is romantic

but there’s nothing romantic about it, nothing romantic about the way i love you differently than anyone i’ve ever loved before

nothing romantic about the way my heart exploded into a burst of color like a supernova the first time you told you me you loved me

nothing romantic about the way i feel a part of me is hollow when i’m missing you even though i’ve never missed anyone before

nothing romantic about the way talking to you makes me smile so hard my face starts to hurt and i can’t remember what sadness used to feel like

nothing romantic about the way making you happy makes me happy in a way my trauma made me think i’d never be happy again

nothing romantic about the way i want to be better, the way i want to recover, the way i want to be stable, because of you

nothing romantic about the way i can’t imagine my life without you

nothing romantic about the way i can’t remember who i was before you met you

nothing romantic about the way i want nothing more than to make you happy and to be able to love you for as long as forever lasts

nothing romantic about the way i’ve fallen in love with you

and i know that to some people, such a love existing beyond the constructs of “romantic” and “platonic” is unfathomable

to some people, this love must be romantic because how could it not be

to some people, this love is lesser and not as real because it is not romantic

but my love is not a box of chocolates, arranged neatly for them to consume and digest and understand

and as long as //you// understand what i mean when i say that i’ve fallen in love with you, i don’t care what the world thinks

at least, not anymore

andie.

i found my uncle dead on a saturday morning. it’s been haunting my head ever since.

i called andie, as soon as i had a chance. she didn’t answer.

she must’ve rung me back during the long, awkward silences of informing my cousin his father had passed.

i called her back. she asked if i could use some company, and offered to cancel her plans.

i told her she didn’t have to, but she insisted on holding my hand. i broke down a few times on the drive to her house.

we held
each other
together
in her bed
for nearly
fourteen hours.

learning the softest parts of one another until we slipped into slumber.

we awoke to our alarms, only 3 hours after.

andie kissed me goodbye, for the first time, just before that sunrise and she went back to sleep.

Ok but imagine this: orphan Ruby going to a supermarket with all the others and asking to buy a yang, Blake, some cinder, and so on, and the others getting upset with how much of a little shît she's being

I don’t think they even care about it anymore

I’m just saying if companies want their skincare products to smell okay they could just use non-volatile oils like rose hip/mango/grapeseed etc. like it’s not that hard

In three months we meet again.

He wears a different winter coat than the one from last year, and his hair is longer. We are at the grocery store, and he is holding a mango in one hand and a grocery list in the other. My bracelet is still on his wrist.

“Hi,” I say, but -

“Fuck. I still love you,” he says, his face pale.

We both watch as the mango bruises under his white fingers.
