Sometimes, it hits you slowly, like it was only a line in some kind of anecdote or panicked joke from ages ago.
In fact, it’s earth moving and soothing at the same time. As soon as you are waking, it’s making its way into your life, yeah.
Someone who you can talk with and live with always. Have fun, but also trust with, not give up when it gets tough.
May not be what you dreamed of in your teens in that white dress, but, love, I’m what you need lots of. We fit like feet and glove when our toes are long enough.
Somewhere that we can go to and know we can call home. An armchair and some tofu at the back of the fridge, neglected, but somehow, it keeps us hopeful, even elopeful, somedays. Not now, but in the future, we’ll stand there like we planned it all.
