I want to wake up next to you
and travel the world with you.
You want to do both when it’s convenient.
You want to do both when you fear
that I’m doing them with someone else.
We talk about our dreams,
but we’ll never live them out loud, as one.
How dare we try to do what makes us happy.
How dare we allow love to win.
I’ve turned my mind upside down and tore it into itty-bitty pieces analyzing our relationship.
I have found that you give me a lifetime feeling,
but I’m just a four-year-long chapter in your book.
