"The truth is that airports have seen more sincere kisses then wedding halls. The walls of hospitals have heard more prayers than the walls of churches."

Love was a symbol of our hearts

Love was wondering where you were on a normal sunday night 

Love was dancing or at least trying to in the rain

Love was you and me

Love was autumn leaves as you jumped back in my pile

Love was wishing on a star

Love was applying to the same colleges just so we can be near

Love was the jokes you told

Love was the scary moments we had

Love was fogiveness

Love was you and me

Love was kissing you goodbye as you boarded your flight

Love was the call saying that you missed me 

Love was your car as it swerved off the road

Love was the tree you hit as you came home to surprise me

Love was the surprise i never got as i texted you goodnight

Love was the dim of sunlight peeking through my window

Love was hands clenched on the sink as i felt sick

Love was the call i got from your mom

Love was the rush to the ER

Love was calling your name down endless hallways

Love was finding your room as you lay there lifeless

Love was you and me

Love was the funeral all dressed in black

Love was the emptiness as people you didnt even know stood around

Love was the air that i could barely breathe

Love was the endless tears streaming down my face

Love was not getting out of bed for months

Love was sad

Love was endless

Love was you and me

Love was us

"and the salt in my wounds isn't burning anymore than it used to. It's not that I don't feel the pain. It's just I'm not afraid of hurting anymore. And the blood in these veins isn't pumping any less than it ever has and that's the hope I have, the only thing I know that's keeping me alive." - Paramore (Last Hope)

Just wow. That was amazing and so descriptive. Whenever I read a good book I always know that an author is good because they are able to make me feel happy with happy parts, regret with dumb ones and pain with sad parts. Any author that can make me feel that horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach with their words is a good one. This is absolutely beautiful and at first I thought it was so cute. I kept on reading and for a while I was speechless.
