The Desire To Live Underwater Forever

If I breathe you in and you breathe me out, I swear we can breathe forever. I swear I'll find summer in your winter and spring in your autumn and always, hands at the ends of your fingers, arms at the ends of your shoulders and I swear, when we run out of forever, when we run out of air, your name will be the last word that my lungs make air for.

One day I woke up and picked my heart up from the dirt. And ran.

Do you remember that you once breathed into my lungs? I never exhaled fully after that moment.leposa

But I don't want to live underwater and I don't want to live in my bird cage. It's really all about freedom, limited freedom became absolute freedom can be dangerous, the freedom to live undisturbed and peaceably and likewise to love and to respectfully be oneself. Though not in absolute freedom where crimes r rampant or injustices unheard without recompense. For in that state we can not fully realize life, love being and freedom. So a birdcage would then be a protection and life underwater a hiding place.

I've been following "I Wrote This For You" for two years now. It's saved as a special tab on my browser and I check it every day for new posts. My birthday is on July 18th, Wednesday of next week, and I can't think of a better birthday gift than to come online and find a brand new post from you. If you have a picture to write for, and the time to do so, I'd be very grateful to you.

You never use the word itself, but you write love so well it often hurts (in the best way) to read it.

you should have said all of the things that you kept inside of you and maybe then i could have believed. when that time comes it will probably be too late because that is how this kind of thing always works. your actions spoke louder than words. your excuses are just that. this is one sided effort, you haven't met me even halfway. do you think i deserve better? i do. ive given up hope that you will ever change. hope cant love me the way i need you to. just please stay away. just please let me heal. just please know i think the world of you but i cant see you, i cant talk to you and i start to tear up when someone even mentons your name. just please learn something, move on and do not let the next one get away because i am not coming back and the person before me isnt coming back and the person befor eme isnt coming back. please find someone that makes you insanely happy and never, ever, ever let them walk away from you because you esecially never see what you have until it is too late. you have to stop that or you will kwwp suffering. please do that for me. i love you. i love you. i love you. i love you. i love you. but i have to go now.

The picture is haunting. Thank you for posting this, thank you to the first Anon on this comment thread and thank you to the1thatgotaway.

This is everything I have not had the courage to think and everything I have been suffering in silence because of.

Thank you.

Keep sitting around feeling sorry for yourself, not doing one damn thing to get me back. I'll keep pretending I'm not in love with you until I am really not in love with you anymore.

We're ridiculous.

Final words. Nothing to reply to or read or confuse.

i can't give you forever, i've never been able to promise that to anyone. i can promise you only 'until i can't anymore'. i can promise you 'until i need space or freedom'. i can breathe you in until i can't any longer and i can refuse to breathe you out until you force me otherwise. i can promise you a place in my heart, but i can't promise to always use it or save you from me.

I was just a breath of fresh air,
you were my oxygen,
that's the difference.

Dear Anonymous, I simply can't. You've kept me waiting for years. I lost myself in waiting and became a woman that I didn't even recognize because it wasn't equal. It's time for you to take the initative or let me go.

It has been 10 years, i have loved one person. Each time I come home, my days are mostly spent with him. I love him but he loves another him. But nevertheless, his name " will be the last word that my lungs will make air for.."
