"A woman is not written in braille, you don’t have to touch her to know her."
"I want you. I want to throw you against a wall, wrap your legs around my waist and kiss you. Kiss you until we have to stop to catch our breaths. I want you and only you. I want to take you on road trips that lead us to pulling over on the side of the road because we can’t keep our hands off each other. I want you and your flaws. I want your messy makeup from teary eyes as I hold you and talk to you about life. I want the 3am phone calls because you can’t sleep at night. I want to be yours and only yours. I want to taste all your cooking, even if it’s not good, even if it’s experimenting I’d have you cook every meal for the rest of my life. I want you. I want my trembling hands to grab your waist and dance with you in the middle of an empty room. I want to struggle on days when I can’t see you. I want to fight about meaningless stuff that will lead to meaningful sex. I want you. I want your hand to rest on my forearm as we enter a party, so I can reassure you that you are safe with me. I want to sing to you in the shower and have you shut me up with kisses because we both know I’m no singer. I want the ups and downs, the winter and summer days. I want you and only you…"
The saddest word
in the whole wide world
is the word almost.
He was almost in love.
She was almost good for him.
He almost stopped her.
She almost waited.
He almost lived.
They almost made it.
"She’s stubborn and hard headed but god knows I love her. There’s days when she’s grumpy for no apparent reason other than the fact that she’s grumpy. When she’s sick, she’s helpless and all you can really do is hold her in your arms and comfort her till she falls asleep. There’s days when she’ll complain about everything like the weather, people, music, or even you and you’ll just have to deal with it. She’ll complain about the room being too hot, to only result in closing the windows in the middle of the night because she’s too cold. There are days when she shuts the world out, she’ll ignore everyone because she just wants to sit in silence. Sometimes, she’ll claim she can eat an entire cow because that’s just how hungry she is. So we’ll make dinner plans and I’ll pick her up just to have her say, “I ate already, I was too hungry but I’ll still eat a little something.” There are days when she suffocates me with love. She’ll kiss and kiss and kiss, till I beg her to stop. She’ll tickle me until my insides hurt and hold my hand till it’s sweaty. There are days when she’ll claim every part of my body with her lips. And there are days when she’ll need her space and I’ll have to pull a chair up alongside the bed because she just needs her own space. There are days when her hair is messy and all over the place. Days when she’ll cry and you don’t know why but you won’t ask you’ll just let her cry. Days when she’s nervous and jumpy about everything. Days when she yells at me for no reason just to apologize two seconds later. Days when she’s a pain in the ass and pushes my buttons just to settle it with kisses. Days when I’m listening to my favorite song and she’ll talk over it because talking is more important than music. There are days when I need her to make decisions, to do the littlest things like pick a place to eat. She’ll refuse and say “I don’t know” until I give up and decide myself. Sometimes she’ll swear like a sailor and make jokes during times when she should probably be serious. There are days when it’s 3 in the morning and she won’t let me sleep and days when she’s too tired and fast asleep by 10pm. Sometimes she’s clumsy and sometimes she’s a walking contradiction; but she is everything I’ve ever wanted. I’d do everything to have her bad days, her grumpy days, her “I need space days,” her love me days, her laughing days, her clumsy days, and her happy days, because she is everything I’ve ever wanted and I wouldn’t dare trade her for anything in this world."
"In a relationship, you need somebody who’s going to call you out, not somebody who’s going to let everything slide. You need somebody who doesn’t want to live without you, but can. Not somebody that is dependent, but somebody who is stronger with you. A relationship is two people, not one."
"Everyone is put on earth with a purpose. There is a reason as to why every single person is here. Maybe one person will save a life, another will build something as beautiful as the Eifel Tower, or maybe someone will have the cure for cancer. Everyone is put on earth with a purpose and sometimes it takes decades to find your purpose, to find why you were born and what you have to contribute to this world. Maybe it’ll be the littlest thing or perhaps you’ll do something so big that it’ll change the way of living. Everyone is put on earth with a purpose and the footprints you leave behind are what define the person you were when you were alive. Twenty-four years of struggles and triumphs; and I have never once doubted my purpose for life and why it is that I was put on earth, in this specific time, in this specific city, in this specific body. I have loved you since the first day I laid eyes on you. I have loved you entirely, I have loved you freely; I have loved you with purpose. I might not be a scientist, the next Shakespeare, or a politician, but I was put on earth to solely love you. You have this fear in your eyes the kind that paints art of doubt. You fear never being good enough and never having the special spark that you require to move on in life. You breathe uneasily and sometimes as you lay on my chest I feel the pain you carry inside you. I was put on earth with purpose and it was to tell you this: Never, once have I stopped loving you because you were “too damaged,” “too fucked up,” “too cold,” or “a lost cause, and no room for repair.” I have a purpose, and it’s a damn good purpose. I love you, I love you; I love you. I am here to love you. I am here to hold you when you feel like the world is upon your shoulders and I will take the weight and bare it on my back so that you don’t walk a day in pain. I am here to wake you up to infinite kisses and tell you that you are loved, Holy God you are loved. I am here to push you and tell you that you are going to school, you are going to work, for fuck sakes you are getting out of bed and facing the day. I am here to make you laugh when you feel like crying and I am here to hold you when you just need to cry. I am here to be your punching bag when you bare fists full of disappointment. I am here to make love to you and to love every inch of skin that God put on your body. I have a purpose and it’s a damn good purpose. I am here to stand along the sidelines when you fight your battles and I will shout at the top of my lungs, “I will be here when you win and I will be here when you lose.” I am here, on earth, for you. I am here when you travel the world and you need to climb every mountain to feel whole. I will be at home waiting for you to tell me about your adventures, to tell me you missed me and how one day we’ll go back to visit these places together. I am here, I am here; I am here to love you. I am here to write novels about you and explain to the world that I love a woman who no other will ever compare to. She has her flaws, and she isn’t near to perfect, but fuck do I love her and no other woman. I love her scent, her feel, her laugh, her eyes, her hands, her passion, her heart; I love almost everything about her. I am here with purpose and it’s a damn good purpose. Years from now if you find that you no longer need me, I will still have this purpose and I will still love you entirely. I was put on earth to tell you I love you, to tell you that it’s just a bad day and we’ll get through this together. I am here to believe in you. I am here to love you. I fell in love with you for the beautiful person you are. I fell in love with you because you weren’t every other girl, because you had your own way about living life. I am here to love you, and I promise you that this is my purpose in life, and it will never go away; I will love you, I will love you, I will love you even on days when you don’t have the courage to love yourself."
