I either trust too much or don’t trust at all, there is no in between.

Concept: taking a road trip with you, but not having a set destination. We’re just enjoying the open road, our favorite music, each other’s company, and the endless possibilities of where we could end up.

I want to hold your hand tighter and pull your body closer. While we whisper all the secrets we’re afraid to share with anyone else.

His hair.
His clothes.
His smell.
His eyes.
His jaw.
His posture.
His mysteriousness.
His quietness.
His loudness.
His competitiveness.
His loyalty.
His dreams.
His goals.
His hands.
His love.
His grasp.
His anger.
His tears.
His smile.
His laugh.
His jokes.
His walk.
His run.
His point of view.
His opinions.
His morals.
His weirdness.
His smartness.
His stubbornness.
His surprises.
His family.
His heart.
His soul.
Every aspect of him, I love.

I love all the things you can’t stand about yourself and I hope one day you realise that I don’t just tolerate you. I love you unconditionally which means I love all of you not just the parts that are easy to love.

Concept: Taking a midnight drive down a deserted dirt road, surrounded by nothing but open fields, a lake, and a clear night sky decorated by only the brightest stars.
You decide to pull over and we lay on the hood of the car so we can stargaze. You point out your favorite constellations but I can’t stop looking at the faces you make when you talk about the universe.

Will you let me love you?

Will you let me love you, when your nights become sleepless and days become grey. Will you let me love you when you’re at your happiest and when you can’t stop smiling. Will you let me love you when you wake up late for work and miss your morning train. Will you let me love you when you’re well and even when you’re in unbareable pain.

Will you let me love you when you are feeling sick so sick you can barely walk. Will you let me love you when you get so excited about watching your favorite movie and all you do is talk. Will you let me love you today and even more tomorrow, will you let me stay with you and share your sorrows.

Will you let me love you, let me love you in all the ways you could only imagine, let me love you and put nothing else above you.

Rainy Morning

Concept: I sleep over at your house and we wake up the next morning to see it’s pouring outside. You get out of bed and disappear into the kitchen and I get out of bed to open all the windows. A cool breeze and the scent of rain take over the entire room. You come back with two cups of tea and we crawl back into bed. We spend the rest of the morning tangled up in each other, enjoying our tea and the sound of the rain hitting the roof. There’s no other place in the world we’d rather be.
