My favorite poem

  1. I was never enough for you
    until you were left with nothing,
    no one to give you love. Am I
    supposed to wait around for you
    to realize that this is really what
    you want, that I am who you want.
    I have things I need to do too,
    you know. The clock is not
    only ticking for you and time
    is not waiting for only you to
    get it together. You only seemed
    to ever want me when my heart
    started putting the pieces together,
    started noticing that there is
    only one person who wants this
    at all times, through everything.
    So don’t be surprised when you
    come back home to a half-empty
    house that is filled with only
    your belongings, your memories.
    Because I have things to do
    too and I’m not going to waste
    my moments waiting on you
    to see that I have always
    been more than enough.

  2. Love me, laugh, and continue to write!

     — Anna Akhmatova, “He was jealous, and anxious, and tender…”
  3. If you truly love a book, you should sleep with it, write in it, read aloud from it, and fill its pages with muffin crumbs.

     — Anne Fadiman
  4. I thought to myself; it’s finished.

     — Tõnu Õnnepalu, Border State
  5. Miserable, darling, as usual, perfectly wretched.

     — 101 Dalmatians (1961)
