to believe.




i want to believe that the sidewalk curb won't always feel like the edge of a cliff

i want to believe that adventure can begin in an instant

and that you can fall in love in the course of an evening

i want to believe that as we age our faces more aptly reflect the caliber of our kindness

and that it was love. even if i was alone in feeling it.

that out of all this sadness and destruction. out of all of this world turmoil, good will arise. 

i want to believe all this (whatever this is) is worth it

oh how i want to believe...

Indeed, there's no point trying at all if all this is not worth it...

i can, and i'm pretty sure it will, happen to you.

this weekend proved to me that this CAN happen. ive never had a boyfriend, never been in a relationship, etc. and the night it did, it was AMAZING. it happened to me when i thought it never would.

but the downside to my unbelieveable love story: he's from another country and is unfortunately much too old for me. even he whispered a sigh to me, "it's too bad i'm twice your age."

ahhhhh.



oy, i'm sorry i rambled! :(

It is, and sometimes its the hardest kind of love.
