    I'm very confused, this ended on such an odd note.

    It was because I swore I would never say it, and a man is nothing if he can’t keep his promises.

    So I write it to the sky—

    I love you, a thousand times over. And I will never apologize for it.
    Flora Fezeuhas quoted3 months ago
    I once had a thousand desires,

    But in my one desire to know you,

    all else melted away.

    I do not have to lose my wife to understand the meaning of loss, Tariq. A child with a broken toy understands such things
