“Never stop telling me how much you love me.
It is the only thing keeping me afloat.”
Your words carry me away on the wind and I find myself breathless. I want so badly to believe in them. Not for your sake, but for mine. Because all I’ve ever known is disappointments, broken trust, and lies. All I’ve ever known is how to feel small and broken. And this weightlessness that I’m feeling when I’m with you leaves me confused. I don’t know if I’ll keep on flying, or if those words will turn to stones and drag me back down to the ground. Right back to where I was.
Back to where I’ve always been.

So darling, don’t ever stop
telling me how much you love me.
It is the only thing keeping me afloat.
Have a great night everyone.
Here’s to 2019!
