From Lynn Crosbie:

December 12, 2015

We lay in a bed facing each other. … the violence seems necessary, but you still have to cover your eyes.

He said, “You didn’t have to follow me,” and I made myself very small.

He told me this in a low whisper in a bed made of stargazer lilies: I would have nightmares later.

For a long time he just had to look at me and I would scream.

I loved it.
