quiet nights, not so quiet minds speeding all through the air.
trembling hands, and tired hearts beg to change the atmosphere around
yet it's more difficult than you could imagine.
lines that will never intersect, though we plead for them to somehow re-direct
your body language tells it all: even when you're a map's distance away
i see you.
and on a lighter note:
today was a day for the beach, as it was greatly needed. im starting to realize that though i have only met this part of my family just recently, my heart knows to protect them.
it knows that these people are my flesh and blood, and words aren't just words in time of need:
they're everything ive got to show for the love that i didn't know i had for them all these years.
stefania and i have peeled away our layers of what makes us tick
the layers of our being that comprise our personality.
but recently we've really gone to the core, to where the flavor of our being really matters
and i have grown to understand how much i love and care for someone i have only met recently.
not anyone that i will lose touch with, or that has shallow similarities with,
but my own family. my own flesh and blood.
i have grown to protect her heart, because she is part of me
and its truly a beautiful thing to unpeel every layer between the two of us
and figure out
that we were more common than we were ever led to believe.
for this, a new love has been revealed to me, and i know it's not something that will vanish with the rain
or stay here in athens when i depart for america in a few weeks.
this a love that is possibly healing parts of me that ive lost.
and maybe, she feels the same way too.
