Latin Locura

Physical Intimacy vs Emotional Intimacy

The defining line

Physical Intimacy

Magnetically instant

Impatient

Potentially surface level

Chaotic at times

Nurturing at others

Difficult dance

Enticing, deciding, sacrificing

Tactical, tangible

Easy to copy

A quick-fix, a bandaid

From point A to point B

Emotional Intimacy

Stillness and peace of mind

Timeless

Understanding and gentle

Does not idealize

Instead,

Accepts and cherishes

The wounds, the breaking

Buttercream laters

Picks up the pieces of doubt and

Grounds you

Let’s you feel the simultaneous rain and sunshine
