You are the very best of me.
I always wanted to love out loud.
I wanted to kiss and laugh and hold hands
I wanted to fight about food and sports and cars
I wanted to endure at least one awkward moment, like the walk of shame or being walked in on by a family member
I wanted the late night drives and walks on the beach
I wanted to get arrested for whatever reason and make it out of the whole ordeal stronger, together
I wanted to cry for hours and call it allergies or a twig in my eye
I wanted to make a meal and forget to add salt or perhaps add too much salt and watch it being eaten in fake joy
I wanted to throw a surprise party and get frustrated because I almost messed it up
I wanted to…
Oh God, I wanted to do a lot of things
I still do
I’ve always wanted to love out loud
I’m actually looking forward to it
