I always have such a guarded heart, because I’ve learned the hard way that the kind of pain without open wounds or broken bones hurts the most and leaves the biggest scars. The almost relationships. I am the almost girl.
Thank you for being you and for letting me be me. Thank you for letting me feel so much like myself when I’m with you. Thank you for not making me wear any masks or put on any fronts.
I hope that you love them wholly, the good and the bad. I hope that the days you spend apart are hard, but the days you spend together make up for it. I hope that once you find them, you can’t picture your life without them.
I miss the way you kissed me, even when I was sick with the flu. And how you said “I don’t care, I’d kiss you all day if I could,” when I apologized for it.
