    Summary

    with a pen in your hand, love in your heart and regrets in your mind; fear slips out on to the page into the words that you left unsaid. the words you left on that sidewalk to be forgotten.

    only it’s not that easy.

    Summary

    He’s sure this is the most honest he’s ever been, but inevitably, this will all be forgotten in the morning. Whatever happens will be pushed to the back of their minds with as much strength as possible, and they’ll move on like it was all some sort of dream. They’ll wake up side by side and start joking with each other like things are normal, they’ll start drinking, smoking, wasting away… and they won’t talk about it; because the curtain in the corner will never come down and the ghost will always remain. In truth, and both of them know this truth, they’re only ever honest with their feelings in the night — and sometimes they beg the earth to stop turning so the sun will never rise.

    Summary

    Because that's how they handle things: every three or four months, Boris gets a new girlfriend and disappears from his life, so that Theo can deal with his disastrous marriage, have some unsatisfying, chore-like sex with Kitsey that leaves both of them frustrated and bitter, and fall into a depressive state again. Then one day Boris comes back – talking about how love went wrong, and he tries hard but always loses, but that won't stop him from loving because that's just his inner nature – and in a matter of time they find themselves like this, discovering new layers of skin again, even if they'll try as hard as possible to rip the word again out of their minds.

    Trying to fix what was broken from the start is a hard task. Talking about it is out of question. No matter how much time passes.

    Summary

    I remember waking up in the night, the clock reading something stupid and the only sound I could hear was the low hum of the fan in the corner of the room, making my brain go even more blank than it already was. I was on autopilot, the whole thing was on autopilot. I couldn’t feel anything. I was numb and cold even though it was one of the warmest nights there ever was.

    I knew he was sleeping next to me, but I didn’t register it. Maybe if I had let my eyes linger on his sleeping figure a little longer then I would’ve resurfaced and not walked out the room.

    Summary

    “Believe me, I've had this debate,” she said, friendly but a little barbed. “Did they send me a fighter pilot with opinions on the baroque period?”

    Summary

    A morning after, a desk filled with nonsense, and suppressed emotions.
    'It had been painful, whatever had caused the scar to be made. The red dangerous colour remained years after healing, one that said it still ached if he laid on his side for too long, if he turned a funny way, or if he thought about it too much.'

    Summary

    I knew he knew I needed him as much as he needed me. He knew I knew he couldn’t bear to be left alone as much as I couldn’t. We had grown accustomed to being wrong together all the time, while we laughed and convinced ourselves the world was the one that was wrong.

    Summary

    It’s only when Theo is seated on the plane that he realizes just how impulsive this is. He has no idea what he’s going to say. Hey, Boris, I know this is going to sound really gay, but I think I’ve been in love with you since we were teenagers, and I think about you all the fucking time and I miss sleeping next to you. Let’s make-out??

    (Theo finally deals with his feelings.)

    Summary

    “Out with it, Potter.” Boris says, he holds the cigarette out to me, and I take it tentatively. We’ve done this so many times before, like an old habit, passing it back and forth until it ran out whilst talking about god knows what. This time, though, I’m far too aware that the cigarette has touched his lips when it’s sitting in between my own.

    I shrug again, and I ought to stop. I know it annoys him. “You are good for me, more than you think you are.”

    Summary

    Of all the people in this world, Boris cares the most. His touches, his words, all of his effort. He cares about Theo. But beyond that, beyond caring, there lies the unspoken territory of something else. Something doors are opened to when an arm reaches out and pulls him close in the middle of the night, or when Theo feels himself go warm everywhere, from his skin to his bones; when he falls into that territory but doesn’t acknowledge its existence.

    They both know it’s there.

    They ignore it, though; they go on with how they are, they don’t speak of it.

    Summary

    He can see, crystal clear, how Theo's eyes blink too quickly, eyelashes suddenly shaking, and his hand slides down Boris' back to just lay on the mattress, fingers contracted on the sheets. There is one hand that lingers on the other boy's arm, though, just a few moments more; Boris' eyes move in that direction, his thigh suddenly keeping a distance from Theo's leg.
    They don't feel comfortable around each other anymore. 

     
    Or: Popchyk is always around Boris and Theo and knows them better than they know each other.

    Summary

    The first night without him is the hardest, but every one after is full of a dull aching, ever-present; a yearning for someone he can’t reach, no matter how far he stretches himself.
