love him as a person starved.
love him good. love him clean.
show him gentleness and take care of him,
but when you are done, girl, you bury the bones.
do not let them rot above the surface.
always remember to give love a funeral,
and pray that it stays buried beneath your feet.
Salma Deera, Lessons From My Grandmother #2 (via absentions)
