    Blue Moon

    So interestingly enough it all started on a wonderful sunny day! I spent a lot of the day walking around and shopping in an area I have never been before. It was very beautiful, the weather was just right. You know the weather I am talking about around 70* with a nice cool breeze...

    don't just love for the reason

    that you need someone beside you or to cuddle with or to brag about. love someone because you love her/him and that you wouldn't want it any other way. I think I'm in love? ;)

    But I haven't been able to hold on to anyone.

    I just want someone to hold me and tell me everything will be alright, someone to make me feel like nothing else matters

    If you love them. ...

    show them. Words become brittle and hallow without a foundation of acts. Solidify your declarations.... or what's the point of declaring them.

    Yes I'm a hopeless romantic

    but I have a really dirty mind. Which gets pretty boring if you ask me. Sometimes I just sit there and think what it would be to have someone and wish I could have someone I could play around with and love but then I remember I don't want the bullshit.

    The Perfect 4th Of July (my Scottish Lover)
