“All I ever wanted was a chance.
To be yours.”
All I ever wanted was a chance. A chance at life. A chance to be happy, to persue my dreams, to be loved. To be yours. I wanted what so many other people felt. That feeling like you’re flying. Like your whole body is hyperaware. I wanted a heart that could run wild. But after everything, what I needed wasn’t a love with abandon. I needed tenderness, understanding, devotion. Safety.
I thought I could never have that with you. And I’m grateful every day that I was wrong.
