doodling


I find you in the strangest places. You’re in that song that comes up when I shuffle my iPod. You’re in the movie that plays at the pantry when I get up to get water. You’re in that little sketch in a sea of notes in the middle of my planner. You’re in every thought.

And I’m sorry that I’ve only written about the bad times, about the stuff we did to make each other cry. I wanted to make up for it by writing about the funny stuff we did, the happy memories we’ve somehow managed to make despite our mutual pain. But every time I tried to, I’d get lost in a daydream and forget what I wanted to say.

So instead, here’s a doodle of you and me from two weeks ago. I know you’re going to make fun of my drawing or my penmanship or how I crudely colored the whole thing using Photoshop. I still hope the message is clear. You’re always on my mind. You stayed when no one else wanted to, when no one else could.

On this day that only comes once every four years, I want to pay tribute to a love that only comes once in a lifetime. Thank you for bringing me back to life. This love may not be much of a home yet but it’s ours to share. With every beat of this little heart, I love you xoxo

  15. "I find you in the strangest places."

    They're pretty normal for everyone I guess, same goes with Westlife's Flying Without Wings. What's strange: when dog poop or flushing the toilet or drag queens remind you of him. Now that's so wrong.

    So, who're you supposed to be in that doodle huh? Happy thoughts. Happy Thoughts. lol

  20. *giggles*

    and.. i must admit, the doodle sold it! *high five*

    really..

    well, the doodle and this would have been enough actually.. --- "here’s a doodle of you and me from two weeks ago. I know you’re going to make fun of my drawing or my penmanship or how I crudely colored the whole thing using Photoshop. I still hope the message is clear. You’re always on my mind. You stayed when no one else wanted to, when no one else could."

    but, then, i guess a sprinkle of cheese isn't bad at all.. i'm not complaining.. hehehe.. :)

    turns out, the citybuoy is a huge CHEESEBALL!! hahaha! :)

      Maybe he stopped talking to you not because of the many dicks in his life but because he was a dick. No one deserves to be treated that way.
