I always wondered what it would be, to sit up late, maybe until three and ask you ‘what does love mean?’, but you won’t answer, and although it seems fine… we’ll never be that word. I used to think that love was real, but then I saw you cry that day I told you I … More 3am
I don’t know how to start this. How do you write something like this? I wish there was a simple way. A way to say, ‘I’m sorry for what happened’, without sounding as distant as the moon.
