I hope they come in reckless swarms
Blow in like the worst storms ever seen
Breaking windows and tearing off doors
Flooding my inbox with inappropriate messages
Even rushing toward me with lusty hands
Wearing mouthwatering lingerie
Or nothing but flirty smiles
And in numbers too large to count
In fact, I hope they come
Nonstop, every day
Just so I can show you how
I’d turn them all away in favor of you

      Yes. It’s hard to find true love, but once you do you never want to let it go for anything, I think.

        True love is miraculous, even when it’s over. πŸ™πŸ’–

        That’s a interesting thought. Maybe you’re right. Even things that last for only a short while can be as important as the things that last longer. The impact of true love can never be diminished no matter the final outcome.
