❝I want to exist with you. Let’s make traditions and spend hours wishing we were together each time we’re apart. Friday nights should be spent on ice cream dates and getting lost somewhere in town. Hold my hand when I feel scared. I’ll listen to your heart beat in sync with the rain, never forgetting it’s slow and steady sound. Wake up on Saturday morning with me. Let’s watch the sun begin to rise, only to fall back asleep again. I will surprise you with every chance I get, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do. I’ve existed all along on my own, but I would rather exist with you.❞
“Do not fall in love with people like me.
I will take you to museums,
and parks, and monuments,
and kiss you in every beautiful place,
so that you can never go back to them
without tasting me
like blood in your mouth.
I will destroy you
in the most beautiful way possible.
And when I leave,
you will finally understand,
why storms are named after people.”
❝I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts, or fears; but I can listen to you, and together we can search for answers. I can’t change your past with all its heartache and pain, nor the future with its untold stories; but I can be there now when you need me to care. I can’t keep your feet from stumbling. I can only offer my hand that you may grasp and not fall. Your joys, successes, and happiness are not mine; yet I can share in your laughter if you let me. Your decisions in life are not mine to make or to judge. I can only support you, encourage you, and help you when you ask.❞
❝I don’t broadcast every high & I don’t hide every low. I’m trying to live. I’m not trying to convince the world I have life.❞
