    Summary

    The metaphor is imperfect but still workable. If my long term memory is a hard drive, then my short term memory is RAM. The hard drive became read-only following the illness. New data is stored in RAM and can be used while I remain awake. Going to sleep – ‘turning off’ – wipes the RAM, returning the system to what it was prior to the illness.

    Summary

    The fact of his pulse,
    the way he pulled his body in, out of shyness or shame or a desire,
    not to disturb the air around him.
    Everyone could see the way his muscles worked,
    the way we look like animals,
    his skin barely keeping him inside.
    I wanted to take him home
    and rough him up and get my hands inside him, drive my body into his
    I wanted to be wanted and he was
    very beautiful, kissed with his eyes closed, and only felt good while moving.
    You could drown in those eyes, I said."

     

     

    -Richard Siken, Little Beast

     
    Sherlock can understand the poetry of it. Soul mates, eternal love, the gaps between your fingers where another's will fit in perfectly.
    Such things, however, are meant for people who are whole and unbroken.
