I want to be there. But no, wait, I want to be here too. I want it
all. I want to follow that stranger and chase down those late night
conversations. I want to breathe in the smell of a new city and walk
down a street I've never seen. I want less rain... until I want the
rain so I can sit back and watch it's peaceful beauty.
Everything's fluctuating. Nothing ever remains still. Something to rely upon would be nice. So that when I turn away for a second, I know it will all be waiting for me when I look back. But that's impossible. And I could never ask that of this life. So we accept what we want, and need. And then we find love in the simplest, and most beautiful things possible. That crumpled blanket, his beautiful smile, her flowing hair, a song that won't leave your mind, that one amazing sentence you're replaying over and over in your mind.
It all makes it worth it.
And one day this will be truly evident.
One quick thing: I've decided to change my user name...so don't be confused when you don't see fightoffyourdemons-- anymore! :)
