do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.
you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours
there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.
but you will never be
and have never been

Talk to me. All the time.
Three years ago, my life changed completely.
Some days, it’s hard to believe it was so long ago. Some days it feels like it’s been forever.
Three years ago, I began a relationship with the woman I love, despite the distance between us.
We’ve closed the distance from time to time - we’re moving closer to getting rid of it forever - and the times I’ve spent with her have been amongst the happiest in my life. Despite the illnesses that invariably decide to come crash our party *g*
She makes me laugh, she makes me smile. She makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. She’s excitement and comfort at once, she’s an exciting trip away, and a weekend relaxing at home. She’s the first person I’ve been so sure I could spend forever with, and the only person I know I need to have with me every day.
She’s the love of my life, and she makes my life better, filling it with love and happiness and peace. And I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her.
Raquel, my dearest, I love you and I adore you. Happy anniversary, my wonderful girl.
It just gets harder,
waiting is always something
you can’t get used to.
So much that I see and love in you *kisses*
do you ever just crave someone’s presence? like you would literally be happy just sitting next to them. it could be completely silent and it would just be magical to be there with them.
This. Yes. Basically every day.
I want to fall to sleep with you,
and I could care less
whether it is in
layers upon layers
or only our skin–
all I really want is to wake up
where I end and you begin.

This just punched me in the heart. So. completely. true.
I am broken and defective, but I am yours, and you were always where I was going.
i want to sleep next to you. i want to sleep next to you and i want to wake up in the middle of the night and roll over and kiss you and know that you aren’t going anywhere.
Oh…oh, so very much *sighs*
These two are my favorite
Every day, I will choose both. I will choose all of you to be mine. I will choose you to belong to.
that was just the cutest thing
Reversed, I think, but sweet. And very much apt for how I feel a lot of the time. *g*
