It's a familiar
heart flutter
and suddenly
I can't breath.
You took it
away again.
Please return
my breath

Today marks a year that my boy and I have been dating. It feels like (maybe this is just because I'm still so young) it's such a long time, such a vast achievement.

I like to watch old couples hold hands as they stroll down the streets of this little city. It makes me feel like there truly can be something legitimate about love, even in today's age of body image and sex appeal. I promised myself when I got into high school and attended my mother's third wedding that I would only ever marry once. If it doesn't work out, I'll never marry again.

Not saying I'm thinking about that anytime soon. I've got far too much life to live, but I'm happy I have someone to drag along on that ride.


  1. If you know who you are, you will be able to get through pretty much anything. I know a lot of people that wanted weddings but not many people that wanted marriage.

  2. I like this one. And congrats on the one year :)
