“Darling, all I ever needed was you.
And you were there.”
I could taste the wildflowers on your lips. The sunlight on your skin, warm and earthy. Every touch from your fingertips felt like I’d never known the sense of touch before. It sent shivers down my spine, and I reveled in it, like I was parched, dying of dehydration in the middle of a desert. In that moment, all I wanted — all I ever needed — was you. And you were there. You weren’t a mirage. So I wasn’t going to ruin the moment. I couldn’t bear to miss something so extraordinary. Because you were the miracle. You were the wild dreaming. You were my fallen star. And I would cherish you forever.
