"This morning there’s snow everywhere. We remark on it.
You tell me you didn’t sleep well. I say
I didn’t either. You had a terrible night. “Me too.”
We’re extraordinarily calm and tender with each other
as if sensing the other’s rickety state of mind.
As if we knew what the other was feeling. We don’t,
of course. We never do. No matter.
It’s the tenderness I care about. That’s the gift
this morning that moves and holds me.
Same as every morning."
one time like 3 years ago I was in an Owl City fandom group video chat and I tweeted Adam Young the link, figuring he’d just ignore it but that it was at least worth a shot, and he joINED THE CHAT AND WENT ON VIDEO AND I ASKED HIM TO MARRY ME AND HE SAID “I’M A LITTLE YOUNG TO GET MARRIED” AND THEN HE LAUGHED AT HIS JOKE FOR LIKE 12 YEARS AND YEAH THAT’S THE STORY OF THE TIME I PROPOSED TO OWL CITY
"Goodbye now to the breakdown between thought, emotion and behavior. Farewell to faulty perception and inapt actions and feelings. Goodbye to withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion. Good riddance to an overwhelming sense of mental fragmentation!"
