Life

I’m a hopeless romantic. I fell the hardest yet for a girl that I never had a romantic relationship with. Do you always think you’re one grand gesture away from winning over someone that just wants to be friends with you?

After all, he gave up so much to be with her. I want to believe it won’t be, that the years we shared are untouchable.

Ask me how I got there and I’ll happily whisk you away in a tale of cobbled streets and antique lamp posts, men with thick eyebrows and women with slender ankles, children with rosy cheeks, weathered bicycles, shiny cars and low flying birds, and of architecture for miles.
