once in my life, i want to be adored.

i want someone to see me in the grocery store, picking out vegetables, and be enchanted by me. i want someone to feel like i’ve walked out of a dream.

i want someone to spend months courting me, not fucking me, not even trying to touch me, just trying to be near me and absorb all of me before i let them inside.

i want someone to stare at me in awe as if i were some ethereal creature while i’m curled up in their bed.
