I don’t ever want to possess you, pick you like a flower, or put you in a jar like a firefly just because I admire your light. That wouldn’t be fair to your existence if I truly care about you, and I do. My hope is to experience you for a very long time. But within that very hope lies my challenge. I must consciously be in the now of you instead of letting my ego create fears that whisk me away into stories of an end that is not here, near and may never come.
“Ermias said you can’t possess people, you can only experience them. And I’ m so grateful I got to experience such a man.” -Lauren London
