Coincidence that 7 months with Josh marks Charlie’s 18th birthday.

Coincidence that 6 months after Charlie’s passing marks my departure for Chicago.

Coincidence.

When I stepped on Yale campus, nothing looked real. I got accustomed to the daily routine of my hometown, where I’ve stay put in since mid-July. I hadn’t seen you for three weeks. You didn’t look real. The streets didn’t look real. Nothing did.

But after a weekend spent with you by my side, I come back home and suddenly, everything looked fake here. I so quickly adjusted to being with you. And now you’re going back to your daily grind while I get ready to embark on my new adventure. More change. More adjustment. More days spent without you. But before we know it, we’ll be back in each other’s arms, I’m sure of it. 

To quote a song: Home is wherever I’m with you.

You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it.

I’m hungering for you; it’s the best way to describe it. But this is a meal I’d never want to end. Internally, the feelings stir, affecting the physical experience, prompting me, reminding me that you are the one who fills me. You complete my wholeness with a gentle touch, a loving kiss, a kind word. I believe that not only is the emotional bond strengthened through distance, but also the physical. For I have never felt such a longing tug, a constant yearning to be by your side. But one that does not consume, merely satiates. My imagination fills your absence and thus, breaches the distance to where you are. There’s a deep desire intertwined with sexual longing, a complete fusion of two strong urges that people often make exclusive of each other. Emotional and physical—powerful, powerful forces built on human instinct. This love has taught me how much I am capable of giving, as well as how much I deserve to receive. To send that love across a few hundred miles is postage I’m willing to stamp. 

Your real first love will make you realize that your first love wasn’t really your first love.

 - Unknown  (via recovering-ballerina)

I’d argue that love is relative, that how we define it in the present is what is truly important. But I will say this: the kind of love I dreamed of living with, the kind that makes me the best version of myself… this love trumps any previously defined love I welcomed into my life.
