“Love isn’t just a matter of looking at someone, I think now, but also of looking with them, of facing what they face.”
Garth Greenwell, What Belongs to You
tags: love

“I fell back from him then, I lay next to him thinking, as I had had cause to think before, of how helpless desire is outside its little theater of heat, how ridiculous it becomes the moment it isn't welcomed, even if that welcome is contrived.”
Garth Greenwell, What Belongs to You

“He had always been alone, I thought, gazing at a world in which he had never found a place and that was now almost perfectly indifferent to him; he was incapable even of disturbing it, of making a sound it could be bothered to hear.”
Garth Greenwell, What Belongs to You
