“Mom, listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga for 22 years, but we have been together for 16. That’s a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born, you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together around the block. When we were two, we were best friends. I mean, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color, her favorite food. Then we became six, Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool to have a best friend that was a girl or even know a girl. So for the next seven years I threw dirt at her. I like to call those “the lost years”. Then when I was thirteen, mom, she put me up against my locker and she kissed me. I mean, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance. She always was talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said. All I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about, and when I’m with her, I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I think is love, mom. When I’m better because she’s here.” - Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World

This work means a lot to me. Years back when I first read the title of it I wondered how the artist could imagine “perfect lovers” as being two persons perfectly in sync with one another all the time. No lovers are. Then I read more into it and found out the story behind it, and since then Perfect Lovers has been one of my most favorite works of art of all time. 

The artist conceived of Perfect Lovers subsequent to the death of his partner, Ross, who battled AIDS throughout their almost ten-year relationship.

The two identical battery-operated clocks were synchronized and set side by side in the gallery. In the course of the exhibit, the clocks inevitably fell out of sync. The batteries of one of the clocks expired while the other ticked on. The clocks being identical in shape is a subtle allusion to homosexuality.

I think that we, as living, breathing human beings, aren’t even consciously aware of our existence most of the time. We float around like ghosts from one dull place to another, fading into the background and just hoping for something more. We yearn to break free from this cycle of monotony, but we just don’t know how.

nightmares.

I had a nightmare the last night I spent with you.

Funny how the first dream I’d share with you was a nightmare.

I hope this says nothing of what lies ahead of us

or of what our relationship consists of

but I know it does.

I  know it with a conviction.

I know it without doubt.

But sometimes nightmares are the most thrilling, aren’t they?

The most fleeting,

The most mysterious.

Amazing how they can leave you feeling like they have searched some depth deep inside that you were afraid to look before.

Nightmares force us to look.

They violently throw the darkness at our faces,

they demand us to at least see

the parts of us we wish to forget.

And if we’re lucky,

if we’re lucky,

we might understand the darkness, too.
