A Year (2011)

Darling,

We’re getting closer to a year now...

A year since I first heard your name,

A year since I first saw your face,

It's June now,

-Come January, it will have been a year,

-That I've been in love with you.

I suppose I could quote RENT here:

"Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand,

Six Hundred Minutes..."

And really, 

How do you measure a year?

And sometimes I find myself wishing,

-That I hadn't let myself fall in love with you...

But then I stop and think:

If I hadn't,

Then I wouldn't know you now,

You wouldn't be in my life at all, 

Darling,

That's too painful a thought to bear...

So I promise,

With all my heart,

That I don't mean it,

When I find myself thinking that way... 

Darling,

I promise,

With all my heart,

That I have no regrets,

No not even one...

Darling,

We've got a ways to go don't we?

Who knows what this year will bring?

...A year since I first heard your name,

...A year since I first saw your face...

And I think,

That maybe I loved you long before,

-I ever knew you existed...

"Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand,

Six Hundred Minutes..."

And really,

How do you measure a year?

Darling,

I can't wait to see what this year will bring...

New loves?

Broken hearts?

Maybe happiness,

Maybe even contentment...

Right now I even dare to hope...

Darling,

It's almost been a year now...

A year since I first heard your name,

A year since I first saw your face...

I think that I can face next year,

And all the years after,

If I have your friendship,

-Love and support...

Darling,

How fast last year went by...

Emo, angsty gothic love stories, mostly some kind of poetry. A passion I didn't know I had until I was about 21. Something that I have been doing mostly consistently ever since. My pen name is Belasrose, my online name is Caerid Lock.
