i cannot wait to fall asleep
peacefully and soundly
with your skin,
tall and warm
beside me.

we will slumber and dream
two, separately,
and awake in each other's arms.

you will come home
in four weeks.
the flights will taper away,
and you will leave behind
barcelona
munich
london
basel
rome

and remember, please,
that i am what waits
those thousands of miles
ahead of you.

i want you to buy me flowers
so i can feel guilty over you
having spent money on me
but feel beautiful
because of how beautiful
the petals are
and the hands that gave them
to me.

i want to put us in photographs
so that i can remember
the way that you touch me
because as months fade into
one another
it becomes easier to forget.
i would rather forget my own name
than your skin on mine.
there will be sparks and fire again
and i think my heart will finally rest
because it will know it is home.

This makes me want to cry. It makes me wish I could be with the one person I love so dearly in this world... But he and I, although we talk constantly, will likely never meet, never be together. I wish I only had to wait 'Four Weeks'.

the one i love most in the world and i will probably meet someday. i don't know how i love him and i don't know how he loves me, but whatever it is, it's lovely. he just makes me so sad, all of the time.
