Princess Azaria
Transformed Bratz Doll by Aliena Esperanza Green

"The first & only time you were eight
you remember remembering being seven
& the religious fear that filled you
when you realized, growing up means
dying. Even worse than dying,
forgetting. If you were previously made of streamers
now you alternated between thumbtacks &
gelatin. Around this time the sky birthed guilt
& it rained into your bones every day
sweet. Good morning, thing I will carry the rest of my life
you should have said when the thing
that made you part of yourself, childhood-altering thing
all childhoods run temple-first into, first
smarted. But you didn’t know any better
than to assume life was a series of events
that moved, that didn’t get stuck on each other
& stretch forwards & backwards: but the brain
is a piece of taffy on a fork, the brain
your brain is a simple concoction of sugars & time,
& you are not always your brain.
The last & only time you were eight
you became nine."

"If you’re ever lucky enough to find a girl who is a hopeless romantic with a dirty mind, you should hold onto that. Because she’ll be yours at two in the morning and at two in the afternoon the following day. She’ll kiss you where it hurts and until it hurts. And that’s important. Someone who not only knows how to turn you on but also knows how to treat you right is someone worth a little something… and a little more than usual."

What's your opinion on this whole topic??

I’ve been cheated on. Did I stay? No. Looking back at it, I never even asked why. Nor did I care why.

There is more then just physical cheating also. If your significant other becomes attracted to someone else they become attached to that person, they might not be having sex with them but they are becoming intimate with them. You know that “when friends cross the line moment”. The text here and there becomes texts all the time and instead of paying attention to their significant other emotionally, they are paying attention to the friend. They’ve checked out of the relationship and didn’t tell you type of thing. Cheating is deep, it’s more then just fucking and sucking.

I love this answer. Life is far too short to put up with someone else’s nonsense.
