subject line: I still think of him sometimes.

 

atlanta, georgia 

I wanted to try to keep all the pieces together but he was going somewhere that i was not and I think that is simply because I wanted adventure and he wanted someone to stay. I wanted a suitcase and he wanted a life. I will never forget the somber look on his face one night in his kitchen when he looked at me and said, “I’m just waiting for you to see that this is all there is, this is all I can offer you. You’re going to go off and do big things and this is all I can give you.”

I should have never had to stand in a room with a boy who was too perfect for a wanderer like me. But there is stepping away when you know that someone is not right for you and that they are supposed to love somebody else one day.
