“i don’t want to be your sport nor you to be mine. i don’t want to punch you for the pleasure of it, tangling the clear lines that bind us, forcing you to your knees, dragging you up again. the public face of a life in chaos. i want the hoop around our hearts to be a guide not a terror. i don’t want to pull you tighter than you can bear. i don’t want the lines to slackin either, the thread paying out over the side, enough rope to hang ourselves.”Jeanette Winterson: Written on the Body.
