I wanna live in a little apartment with you. We can walk along the beach in the summer and cuddle up inside in the winter. I’ll cook you breakfast in the morning while we’re still in our underwear and oversized t-shirts. You’ll sit and watch me, clinging to your coffee cup for warmth. We can go on silly dates every Thursday night and go out to breakfast every Monday morning, just to make Monday something to look forward to. We can make a huge mess of our kitchen and each other trying to bake cookies. Then we can take a shower while they’re in the oven and pray we don’t let them burn. I just want to spend my free time with you, making memories and falling in love.
I learned not to trust people; I learned not to believe what they say but to watch what they do; I learned to suspect that anyone and everyone is capable of ‘living a lie’. I came to believe that other people - even when you think you know them well - are ultimately unknowable.
