Bliss

“Exhaust the little moment. Soon it dies. And be it gash or gold it will not come again in this identical guise.”

He said he was gonna nap for 20 minutes. His 20 minutes became 3 hours. Please note the change in brightness at his window and in my room.

At this point his alarm rang. It went on for about 3 minutes because he didn't realize it. It sounds stupid but I actually did a visual check on his breathing hahaha because how is it possible to not hear the alarm at all?? If there was a fire he would be burnt in his sleep.

The sun was setting here and rising over there. And my your-20-minutes-is-damn-long face.

My room was completely dark.

Hahahaha finally. After this screenshot he went back to sleep. And is still sleeping at this instant.


I feel a little like Edward Cullen, watching someone sleep. Except for the fact that I am not there physically, and I am only 20 and not a vampire. When you look at someone sleep you see them in the most vulnerable state. They are stripped of their defenses. And you look at them in a way you seldom do when they are awake.

I hear you breathing and snoring right now and it's so funny but comforting. Feels so much closer, despite being 9000++ miles apart geographically. Times like this make up for the insecurities, the unhappiness, the fights, the distance. Times like this make petty arguments seem so damn stupid and irrelevant. What the hell was I thinking? I miss waking up to your face in the morning. And I miss looking at you and realizing that I like the sleep left in your eyes (although I need to locate them first hahaha kidding).


How can you miss a person this terribly.
