We start. Again. Once again. This time not as each other's love, but as friends. Just friends.
Science believes that memories can be altered through outside influences, so maybe, maybe I remember everything wrong; maybe we never met, and that one time where we wrote 'forever' in public places didn't happen. Is that what you are? A false memory implanted in my brain by my heart who got tired of listening to me rant about how this world is doomed because it doesn't understand romance.
As the sun emerged from the deepest shadows, you looked at me with a smile. Could I have you there, forever? I saw us. Our story. As a tainted mirror. How our lives had intertwined together, slowly. We laid there like undone pages of a diary where they write love songs about their lovers in. You told me that no one could ever love you the way you wanted and I laughed out loud at how silly you sounded, how unaware to never realise that the one who loved you was right next to you. You asked me if I would write to you when you got lost and I promised I would do it daily and you laughed at how silly I sounded and I, at how unaware you were to never realise that I still write to you when you are long gone and I am hoping my words will somehow reach you in places my love can't.
Today, you ask me what I want and I tell you I want you. There is no hidden meaning to it, no negotiations, no truce. At this moment, I want you to know you're special. I want you to know these aren't disjointed qualities. That you aren't a disjointed personality. I want you to know you're a lot of things, and each of them is important. You are wanted, for who you are. I want you, and I would, no matter what. In the end, that's all we ever want. To be honest to someone. For someone to be honest to us.
