There are parts of our time together that I still remember, and I keep those like stones, in my pocket. Though they are pleasing and sparkly in certain kinds of light, they weigh me down. They rattle when I walk, make my takeoffs and landings heavy when I try to fly, and press painfully against my bones when someone else embraces me.
