I think that when you fall in love with someone, every single day you spend with them you fall in love with them even more. It’s like you find something else to love about them everyday. The way they laugh, the way they sneeze, even the way they blink. I think that’s how relationships last. When things are exciting, everyday you spend with that person is like an adventure into their soul.
I want to write you letters and take pictures of you with a polaroid.
I want to walk with you to your door after a night of holding your hand.
I want to spend our evenings reading books by a fire and candles.
I want to invite you over for a meal out of my grandma’s cookbook.
I want to escape to a place where the simplest things mean the most.
—  & I want to go with you
We fall in love with personality, the words they say, and their behaviour, the thoughts and opinions, the moments you make and remember. We lust with our eyes and love with our hearts. I would say it is completely possible to fall in love with someone without having a physical contact because it is a pure, raw love for them, who they are and what they’re about. Perhaps it’s the best way to fall in love. You fall in love with the sight of their soul.
I feel insecure when I’m with you because I want to be everything you could possibly want and I know that will never happen.
—  F.M
I don’t love you anymore,”
she sighed,
directing each word
at shuffling feet,
sensing the air around them
saturate with broken disbelief.
Then –
the most gentle of touches
lifted her chin,
allowing misty eyes
to meet one last time.
(Silent minds; souls conversing.)
“You lied,” trembled his voice,
“… but I agree.”
Two truths she silently spoke
through the mirrors of her soul:
“I will always love you”, and,  
“you’re bad for me.
