She had fallen in love with him slowly, over the course of four squandered years.  He had loved her from the minute he saw her, and had vowed never to leave her, regardless of the reason.

It is ink drying on a page And neatly folded laundry that describe me. It is bakery scents And two day t-shirts that represent you. Together, we are the perfect ratio Of seriousness and humor, Of neatness and disorder. I keep you straight; You mess me up.

One of the differences between me and the person I love is that she has conversations with the sun and I have conversations with the graveyard outside my neighborhood.

I remember when I first got my own apartment, the first thing I bought was a refrigerator, and the second thing I bought was a pack of plastic alphabet magnets. My friend told me I could write everything I was thinking. I told her that my options were going to be pretty limited because I only had one...
