I don’t care about forever and infinities. They sound poetic and cheesy, yes. But they are abstracts lacking assuring finite.
You don’t have to promise me tomorrow. Or a grandiose wedding. Beautiful children. A steady home locked around white picket fence. Those are just social clichés.
No need to promise me the moon, the stars, and even the sun. Let them stay on their thrones. Let them shine on their own.
I just want now and you. I just need now and you.
Forget about tomorrow or the ever hopeful forever. Ditch them. Erase them. Scrap them. Just love me now.
