    Alone With My Thoughts

    At Some Point, It Is Automatic

    I enjoy that feeling, after I've been walking a while, and my legs just keep going. Perhaps it has been hours even. I may know where I am, it may be familiar, or not. I didn't even notice the passing of time.

    I want this too... I want all of it.

    I want the pointless bickering, the long walks, the last night phone calls, the good morning text messages. I want cute pictures with you, to hold your hand, to make food for you just to call you baby. The joking, the wrestling the fights, the long how I fell texts after we...
