my favorite thing about us?
the way that even when I'm losing my cool,
freaking out about the uncertainty of the future,
I know that we'll still be together.
no matter what.
maybe it's the way that you hold me,
demanding nothing more than a
simple return of affection.
or the way I crave you,
maybe it's the way that I've known for
a while now that you're
the one I'm supposed to make this work with.
and that you want it, just as much as
there are so many things that I favor
in our relationship.
but I enjoy that my feelings
are taken as valid and are
even reciprocated by you.
I never worry about
if you feel the same.
I just know.
