“his kindness like bathwater, lapping my shoulders, milky and warm.”

“He’s the only person who ever understood that desire. Not to die, but to already be dead.”
Kate Elizabeth Russell, My Dark Vanessa

Kate Elizabeth Russell
“There are men who never turn into boyfriends, who peer behind the curtain and see the mess of me—literal and figurative: the apartment with a narrow path through the clothes and trash leading from bed to bathroom; the drinking, endless drinking; the blackout sex and nightmares. “You’re kind of screwed up,” they say, at first with a laugh in their voice, an attitude of maybe this will be fun for a while, but as soon as I slur out the story—teacher, sex, fifteen, but I liked it, I miss it—they’re done. “You’ve got serious issues,” they say on their way out the door.”
Kate Elizabeth Russell, My Dark Vanessa

“I was an obvious target. He chose me not because I was special, but because he was hungry and I was easy. Back at my apartment, while the man and I have sex, I leave myself in a way I haven’t in years. He and my body are in the bedroom as my mind wanders the apartment, curls up on the couch, and stares at the blank TV.”
Kate Elizabeth Russell, My Dark Vanessa

“Aren’t you going to ask where I’ve been?” I say. She stares at me, into me. She sees everything. “If I did,” she says, “would you tell me the truth?”
Kate Elizabeth Russell, My Dark Vanessa
