I don’t know when this happened or even why, but I’ve fallen absolutely stupidly in love with you. We’ve only spoken a few times through mutual friends and you’re already in a relationship. I’m selfish for wanting you so much. It takes every ounce of my courage just to talk to you. And even afterwords I spend the rest of class blushing like an idiot staring at your back. I daydream of a life where we’re together. I’m kinda selfish for wanting you this badly but someday. Until IYAMYOURs
IYAMYOURS because you have cared about me every step of the hard journey of acceptance I had to take when I was thrust into the middle of my parents’ divorce. You have given me so much to care about, even when I was surrounded by uncaring people. I have been carried out of the emotional wreck that my father had created. And now, I realize how much we care for each other. I have been given an angel, a guardian, and a lovely lady to enjoy. I love you. Always remember that IYAMYOURS.
Is it love if you barely know I exist? I’m not sure. But when I walk past you and see your smile, hear your bright laughter, watch you do little things that make you so, so happy, I think it might be. One day I’ll be strong enough to tell you how I feel, but until then I wish you the best in life and love. IYAMYOURS
Whenever I feel bad about life and the world in general I sit alone in my room with my laptop. And I watch you on screen. I watch you smile, laugh, and cry with your friends in your world. I admire how beautiful and strong you are, exactly what I’ve always wanted and wanted to be. hearing your voice in my headphones calms me down. I smile or blush everytime I see a picture of you or hear you name. Even if you don’t exist, I would want to meet you just once. I want to thank you and say IYAMYOURS.
Liana, you fumed with me over homophobes, held me when I was in tears over Santorum’s hatred, helped me off the road that first time you met me after I’d been attacked. You were ecstatic today to hear Obama finally endorse same-sex marriage, but then our own nation’s leader essentially said he doesn’t care that we can’t get married. Please know that, no matter what the law does to stop us, I love you and we’ll get married somehow. I promise. IYAMYOURS, and always will be. Karen.
