When I’m around you, I don’t think about anything else. Time freezes for a little while.
See… I’ve never had love like this before. Love that is so honest. So real. Love that comes so easily.
Love that teaches me something new every day.
Like the fact that the pain from my past does not define who I am now. It’s part of how I got here, but I don’t have to hurt about it anymore.
Like the fact that when I need you, I shouldn’t feel like I’m a burden or inconvenience. I shouldn’t be afraid to ask to see you two days in a row. I shouldn’t be afraid to say that I’m having a bad day.
Like the fact that there are men out there who like to communicate. Be honest. Be truthful. Be an open book. Not hiding their phones out of plain sight. Not lying about where they are and who they’re with. We don’t have to worry about hiding those things, because there’s nothing to hide.
Being with you is pretty much like being with the other part of me. The part I didn’t really know existed in real life.
The part that I always hoped I’d find, but can’t even come close to explaining it when I try to now that I have it.
I know that we don’t need each other in the grand scheme of things. We could have never met and I’m sure, no, I’m positive things would’ve worked out either way.
But that’s not how life went. We got lucky. We found each other. No, I don’t need you, and you don’t need me either.
But I want you in my life. And see that’s why relationships worth preserving take work. Because we want to be in each other’s lives, we work to be there for each other. We work to make each other smile. We work to comfort each other. We work to make time for each other.
Though I have to admit, it doesn’t even remotely feel like work.
I think the best part about all of this is that you feel exactly the same way I do.
I’m that other part of you that you didn’t know existed.
And now we have all the time in the world to enjoy it.
I love nights like these. It’s just you, me, a bottle of wine, usually pizza, and the whole night to talk, laugh, snuggle, and watch the world from afar. We rarely watch it, though. We don’t really care what anyone else is doing.
