Favorite Quote:
So I suppose my simple advice is: Love your life. I only say that because your life is what you have to give.
-Tom Hiddleston


His shirt is blue, but it's a lighter shade than his eyes. His jeans are black, but darker and more washed out than his inky locks. His shoes are gray with white laces.
He's always outside when I pass by. I imagine that he's waiting for me. I gaze at him as I walk past. He never seems to realize that I'm there, that I exist. He plays an acoustic guitar sometimes. Sometimes he's shuffling a deck of cards. Other times he just stares off into the distance.
I wish I could join in when I hear him singing softly. I wish I could sit next to him on the steps and lean my head on his shoulder. I wish that I, too, could ignore the world and forget the cars driving past, and do nothing, do nothing. I wish he could kiss me and the dark stubble on his face would tickle my cheek and then we'd go in and have cereal for dinner.

If you didn't get it then the guy is actually a car I want.
