one hundred and eighty eight days.
so i guess this event will show a lot.
at least i'll know.
i wish my heart didn't hurt.
i wish i meant more to you.
truth is though....
i'll live happily ever after and you'll just be a bigot.

for whatever reason, THAT made me smile from the inside out.
he really is cooler than i ever would have imagined.
Song of Solomon 1
2 Kiss me and kiss me again,
for your love is sweeter than wine.
16 You are so handsome, my love,
pleasing beyond words!
The soft grass is our bed;
17 fragrant cedar branches are the beams of our house,
and pleasant smelling firs are the rafters.
Song of Solomon 2
3 Like the finest apple tree in the orchard
is my lover among other young men.
I sit in his delightful shade
and taste his delicious fruit.
4 He escorts me to the banquet hall;
it’s obvious how much he loves me.
5 Strengthen me with raisin cakes,
refresh me with apples,
for I am weak with love.
6 His left arm is under my head,
and his right arm embraces me.
10 My lover said to me,
“Rise up, my darling!
Come away with me, my fair one!
16 My lover is mine, and I am his.
He browses among the lilies.
Song of Solomon 5
10 My lover is dark and dazzling,
better than ten thousand others!
11 His head is finest gold,
his wavy hair is black as a raven.
12 His eyes sparkle like doves
beside springs of water;
they are set like jewels
washed in milk.
13 His cheeks are like gardens of spices
giving off fragrance.
His lips are like lilies,
perfumed with myrrh.
14 His arms are like rounded bars of gold,
set with beryl.
His body is like bright ivory,
glowing with lapis lazuli.
15 His legs are like marble pillars
set in sockets of finest gold.
His posture is stately,
like the noble cedars of Lebanon.
16 His mouth is sweetness itself;
he is desirable in every way.
Such, O women of Jerusalem,
is my lover, my friend.
Song of Solomon 6
2 My lover has gone down to his garden,
to his spice beds,
to browse in the gardens
and gather the lilies.
3 I am my lover’s, and my lover is mine.
He browses among the lilies.
Song of Solomon 7
10 I am my lover’s,
and he claims me as his own.
11 Come, my love, let us go out to the fields
and spend the night among the wildflowers.
12 Let us get up early and go to the vineyards
to see if the grapevines have budded,
if the blossoms have opened,
and if the pomegranates have bloomed.
There I will give you my love.
13 There the mandrakes give off their fragrance,
and the finest fruits are at our door,
new delights as well as old,
which I have saved for you, my lover.
"maybe you've done it wrong enough times that you know exactly what you need now..." K.S.
this is different.
it's so strange. bizarre. unreal. illogical. beautiful. fabulous.
he is different.
he loves me.
i love him.
it. feels. good.
it feels right
it feels like it makes sense, even though, it can't.
i'm waiting to wake up...
