This is where I began the journey.
This is where I became a fan.
This is the place I came to call home to my rants and ravings on music and boys and cats.
Why cats? I don’t know, they’re cute so just go with it.
Because of this place I got to know my idols.
Because of this place I fell in love with each one separately.
Because of this place I was able to live my dream.
To touch their hands and look in their eyes.
And I thought it was the best thing to happen in my life.
But life is funny sometimes.
Life is strange and random.
Life is precise and exact.
And sometimes when you’re busy with your plans and your obsessions
You miss the uncontrolled happening behind the scenes - before your eyes.
You happened to me one random day.
You came out of nowhere with you’re happiness and joy.
You popped out of the sky and vomited hyperactive rainbows all over my face.
Shut up that was beautiful damn it.
We laughed together and cried together.
We freaked and flailed and leaped about in fangirl tantrums.
We became friends - twins - sisters in a day.
And that day has stretched months, will stretch years soon enough.
But I didn’t ask for you.
I didn’t search for you.
I didn’t prepare room in my heart for you, yet you arrived all the same.
You crept right in and set up camp ya booger, and now I wouldn’t have it any other way.
When you’re sad or lonely.
When you’re tired or stressed or angry.
When you’re ready to be finished with the fight.
Don’t focus on the distance between us or time we spend apart.
Just stop and think about how much I love you.
Think about how much I truly care.
Think of all our memories we’ve had and will come to share.
When you came to live in my heart
I went to live in yours too.
My best friend through thick and thin.
Remember I’m always beside you.
So that is why this place is important.
In the end, that is why I stay.
And even if the music changes, the boys disappear, or the cats are suddenly un-cute.
For you, because of you, and with you I will always remain.
