In a Box

Posted on Fri, Apr 29, 2011 at 4:00 AM

You're probably the reason I got a new phone. I didn't actually need one; I could have handled not having one, but then you show up and want to call me and text me all the time. You show up and ruin everything, ruin the fact that I had a good thing going. I was able to live my life without trusting too many people and just keep moving forward. But, then you came in and swept me off my feet with your voice, your love for nature, your eyes, the way you treat my mom, and most of all, the way you make me feel like no one else exists. You made me look up after staring at my feet for so long... and I hate you for it. But for all those reasons, there is no one else I would rather love. —At the Dinner Table
