Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars~

When they ask me about my future wife, I always tell them that her eyes are the only Christmas lights that deserve to be seen all year long. I tell them that she has a walk that can make an atheist believe in God just long enough to say, ‘God damn.’ I tell them that if my alarm clock sounded like her voice, my snooze button would collect dust. I tell them that if she came in a bottle, I would drink her until my vision is blurry and my friends take away my keys. I tell them that if she was a book, I would memorize her table of contents. I would read her, cover to cover, hoping to find typos, just so we could both have something to work on, because aren’t we all unfinished?

I long so much to make beautiful things. But beautiful things require effort and disappointment and perseverance.

Everyone wants to be the sun to lighten up everyone’s life, but why not be the moon, to brighten in the darkest hour.
