The Things We Could Do Today

Let's pretend we're artists and everything we feel is something new to be proud of. Let's take our imaginary friends on a double date and ditch them in a movie and hope they get along while we kiss outside on the sidewalk. Let's take the dreams you mumbled in your sleep and paint a child's nursery. And if we don't finish today, we've always got tomorrow.

It's amazing that a person can feel so alone, just to find something like this and realize so many other people are feeling the same way.

"We're not alone just lonely all the time"
-Not Asking You To Leave by Motion City Soundtrack.

You don't know how happy I felt when I heard those words, and how simultaneously happy and sad it makes me feel to read yours.

I pretend all the time. I pretend that every new person I meet is you and that we share these lovely words. Today or tomorrow it may someday be true.

You're my guilty pleasure.



Guilty because each time I go here, there's something within me that breaks.


But I keep coming back.
