"Their plan had been very simple: to stay together for the rest of their lives; a plan that anyone within their circle would agree was accomplishable. They were best friends, lovers, and soul mates, destined to be together, everyone thought. But as it happened, one day destiny greedily changed its mind…"
“I waited, and waited. And he waited, too, though I didn’t know what he was waiting for. It felt like I was the only one reaching out. But he was always there. Watching me, watching him. Never any closer to me, but never any farther away, either.”
"I feel like a jig-saw puzzle missing a piece and I’m not even sure what the picture should be."
And when you came into my life, I didn’t care about the picture…although you were puzzling me in some ways. Because…
“You are the distance between the ways things are and the way I want them to be…
Time and distance are what daring me. I feel you are so closer yet so far away…Like the millions of stars I was gazing up the night you sat there beside me. In the middle of strange silence, you’ve broken up my dream saying…
“Don’t wake me cause I’m dreaming of angels on the moon
You can tell me about your thoughts,
About the stars that fill polluted skies
And show me where you run to,
When no one’s left to take your side.”
I couldn’t say a thing. No words for what I feel. Perhaps I know you know what my heart is.
“Cause I could see your heart. You held it out before you for everyone to see, and I worried that it would be bruised or torn. And more than anything in my life I wanted to keep it safe, to warm it with my own."
