an assortment of letters to nowhere

am I really allowed to do this?

I’d almost forgotten this feeling of wondering, wondering whether I mean to you what you mean to me.

I’ve always thought that it would be terrifying if you (thought) you were home alone and you sneezed and then a disembodied voice said, “bless you”

  1. if you ever want to wear mommy’s make-up, just make sure you don’t eat it. when it’s time to go to bed, I will help you wash it off.

  2. when school starts and you want to jump rope instead of play kickball, be careful not to trip and hurt your knees.

  3. if you grow up and a boy makes your heart hurt, you do not have to be ashamed.

  4. if you fall in love with a girl
    who wears the same clothes
    as you, it will be easy for me to buy you both presents.

  5. if I teach you anything, I will teach you to be gentle.

  6. you are not Atlas and the world
    is not a burden for you to carry.

  7. if you do not like your body, if you feel like you were put inside the wrong one, I will stand by and watch you become again.

  8. because we are human beings and we do not always have to
    take what we are given.

  9. I will love you constantly, fervently, always.

  10. I will teach you the value of
    the word “no” so that, when you hear it, you do not question it.

  11. when the war comes
    and you want to fight, I will
    sleep with clenched fists until you come home to me.

  12. when the war comes and you don’t want to go, I will sleep soundly.

  13. you are allowed to be soft. you are allowed to break and bend. you do not have to be strong. you do not have to be a soldier.
