subject line: in a perfect world.

 

The South

That’s what I wrote on a Polaroid of us that I’ll keep forever.

In a perfect world, we would be together. You’d be my forever date & dance partner.
You’d make me laugh at you for just being you.
You’d be the southern gentleman that I’ve always dreamed of marrying.

We would have that suburban home with our 3 kids and a dog.

However, that isn’t the case.

The reality is, we’re about to both graduate and move forward with our lives. You’ll probably end up in South Carolina and I’ll probably be in San Fransisco. (After I’m done with my year in our college town.)

We’ll both fall in love, get married, and have kids but not with each other.

I’ll probably marry a hippie or a farmer. You’ll probably marry a girl from the southern town of Charleston.

In a perfect world, I’d get you for all the nights, not just one.

But for one night, I had you. And I want to remember that night for the rest of my life.
