“America, my love, you are sunlight falling through trees. You are laughter that breaks through sadness. You are the breeze on a too-war day. You are clarity in the midst of confusion.
You are not the world, but you are everything that makes the world good. Without you, my life would still exist, but that's all it would manage to do.
You said that to get things right one of us would have to take a leap of faith. I think I've discovered the canyon that must be leaped, and I hope to find you waiting for me on the other side.
I love you, America.
"But sometimes it's about what you want to do, not what you have to."
"Break my heart, break it a thousand times if you like, it was only ever yours to break anyway"
"But with his eyes right there, staring so deeply into mine, it was easy to dismiss that. I could forget about everything surrounding us when he looked at me like that. And so I did. I fell into Maxon's arms, holding him tightly. There was no place in the world I wanted to be more."
"Hell, my dear," he whispers.
"Don't start," I warn in return, and we're both left smiling. He holds my hands as if they're the only things pinning him to earth and i focus on that as i prepare myself for the words coming, the promises I'll never break. It's magical really, the power this day has.
But even now I know this isn't a fairy tale. I know that we'll have hard times. I know that things won't happen the way we want them to and that we'll have to work hard to remember that we chose this. It won't be perfect, not all the time. This isn't a happily ever after. It's so much more than that. -America S.
"Break my heart, break it a thousand times if you like, it was only ever your to break anyway
