Long after bedtime, I will wake up and sit crosslegged watching you...

It is your fault for having your face.

Quite possibly one of my favorite Everything2 writeups... It is a statement of succinct beauty, if there could be such a thing. This is just one line- one that evokes a feeling of "*that's* what I want"-ness in me... To have someone to sit crosslegged next to, watching, long after bedtime. It's not about sex. It's not about having a status symbol, or a label, or any of those things to "call your own". It's about true companionship and a true sense of purpose- to keep that person safe, and to love that person and to know that they love you.

It's about the simplest definition of perfection, as I can imagine it. It's about all I want, and about all I can do for now is dream that I'll have just that. Someone to live on such rationed time with- where every piece of it is too valuable to sleep through. Personally, I'd love nothing more than to sleep next to, and hold a girl whom I truly love....

Sleeping, your hair and your face are doing things you wouldn't knowingly let them do. You are foreign, you are beautiful, you half wake up and ask what is the matter, you mumble 'What are you doing?'.

Keeping you safe I say.

That sweetness, right? It's not my line, but it's the kind of line that only makes me wish I had thought of it first... And it's a dream of mine... one that I hope will be realized, with me sitting crosslegged...
