“You’re playing with fire, you know,” Jamie said.
“I know. I’ve never been so vulnerable in my life. He has everything I’ve tried to keep locked up. And it’s like…I didn’t even try to keep it from him! He showed me his heart and I just said ‘Oh, well here’s mine you can keep it if you’d like. Don’t mind the cracks.’ Everything I do I picture how it would be with him. Even in the simple things like watching television, going out, being on vacation. And the moments you think no one is watching, walking around the house in boxers and a tshirt, cleaning and singing at the top of your lungs, dancing like a fool. He’s in all of it. And I can’t make it go away!” Sarah flopped onto her back and stared at the ceiling. “I know there’s no way to know what’s going to happen and that scares the hell out of me. I think about it all the time. The idea that he has so much of me, and I won’t get any of it back in one piece if he ever left. He’d take all of it with him.”
“Sounds like love, my love.”
“Love is dangerous.”
“But is it worth it?”
“To be known? For someone to understand and speak to the deepest pits of your heart? Is feeling like you’re constantly falling off the side of the cliff worth seeing his hand be the one outstretched to pull you back up?? Yes. And it’ll be worth every shard of broken heart if he were to leave…”
“They say a girl who reads will try to make her life like her favorite book. You’re the book I’ll never be able to turn my life into…”
Stay weird, y’all XOXO ❤️
