What I can't live without?


He's never gotten me flowers,

but on Valentine's Day 4 years ago

he gave me two only slightly melted

pieces of a Kit-Kat.

They're my favorite.

You know the feeling of exhilaration

you get when you're on a

rollercoaster that's just too fast?

Well, every time he grabbed my hand

it felt just like that.

And when I hear people talk about

love, the "I got you flowers and chocolates" kind of love,

I have flashbacks 

to the day he told me

he loved me & it sounded like

a symphony.

You want to know why I can't live

without him? Well ask yourself this:

how can you live without the one thing

that lets you breathe?
