Can I ask a million questions, half expecting a million answers? Should I try to learn all I don't know but should've learned when I was young Basic human interactions, I must've not been listening
One moment I merely stood, listening to everything and nothing, when there you suddenly were. Small, unimportant, fragile, and utterly beautiful.
