I told myself that you were the one I’d settle for. Because at 26 you forget that the sunflowers smile and you’ve already come to terms with the rain coming every night. We have prepped for this and our rainboots are brand new and our jacket is Chanel.

“All because you decided you aren’t going to settle”

But, one day it hits you and suddenly you realize that you don’t have to walk where the rain is falling and the flowers are just delightful and you wonder how your thoughts ever became so strayed in the first place.

Because, you remember that love is this beautiful thoughtless, array of perfect and imperfect memories just for you and another to share. That love consists of late nights, little talks, sweet secrets and kisses when you can’t sleep. All because you decided you aren’t going to settle for the one who made settling sound so rash.
