soul secrets: december 01, 2011.

you held my hand
in the dark, dome theater.
it was normal.
it was natural.
you'd held my hand so many times before
but this time it was different.
this time it was new.
my heart pounded to the beat of led zeppelin
and my eyes danced with the lasers.
your fingers rubbed my hand
and squeezed it tight.
i let a small smile escape my lips.
my body looked calm
but my brain was flying.
i'm not sure if it was the combination
of loud music and flashing lights
or the fact you said my name five times
and put my cold hand in your pocket as we walked,
but i got high.
in a moment of insanity,
a moment of weakness,
 i thought,
"these hands
the ones holding mine right now
could be the last hands i ever hold.
this could be it.
i could be done."
and i smiled.
my heart skipped.
my stomach turned
and i felt calm.
i felt happy.
i felt home with you.

first of all, that fact that he was the very first to comment on your blog makes me want to scream and jump and eat ice cream. this post in general makes me want to do all three plus run 50 laps plus blow up 200 balloons, and i can't even blow up balloons. moral of the story: i am so so so excited for you and can't contain my excitement anytime i see you post anything about the topic! alsooo, finals end tonight which means i am ready to see you & hear everything!

2012 kylee is significantly better at commenting than 2011 kylee (she's 10x funnier too). posts about your love might be my favorite... those hp posts have some competition.
