The 10 commandments of friendship:
I will never come onto you.
I will never let our hands linger longer than they need to.
I will not stroke your arm to get your attention.
I will not breathe you in as we hug.
I will never wonder what you are up to, or what you are thinking about when you’re not here.
I will never think about the shape of your lips, how they would feel against mine.
I do not think of us in bed together.
I do not daydream about what our lives could be.
I am not jealous of your boyfriend…
I will never seek existence, just to hold you.
