you are most beautiful when you least expect it.

… so don’t walk around with your head held down. there’s a beauty in you you haven’t yet discovered. i’m holding it out to you. there’s nothing worthless about you. you just have to have that courage to be who you are in a world where the being fancy about aesthetics take centerstage. you are being you. and nothing can be more beautiful than that.

you. now there’s you.

there’s a second chance for everything. at least for us anyway. although this may be the nth time we’ve decided to give it a try one more time. maybe the few years of separation and slowly learning to make our way around life did made us better not only for ourselves but for each other as well. it still feels like we’re coming around re-discovering each other.

you asked me if i still write. i am. only this time, you inspire me in the quirkiest way possible. you should know that you’ve given me some spark to write something other than the sadness i occasionally feel.

you make it less lonely. even when you’re away. even when i only see you at  certain weeks in a year. this distance that we have now between us feels like it doesn’t make us grow apart anymore. it only makes us want to learn more about each other. and i take refuge in that.

there’s quietness now. or there is a significant change in how we can be comfortably settled with each other. i can lounge around in casual shirts in cold weather and still feel warm because there’s now you.
