Love

Do you know when I said I knew nothing about love?
That wasn’t true.


I know a lot about love.


I’ve seen it.
I’ve seen centuries and centuries of it.


It was the only things that made watching your world bearable….
To see the way that mankind loves…
You could search the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful.



So yes.
I know that love is unconditional.


But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable.
But strangely easy to mistake for loathing.

What I’m trying to say, Tristian, is, I think I love you.


My heart feels like my chest can barely contain it.
Like it doesn’t belong to me anymore. It belongs to you.



And if you wanted it, I’d wish for nothing in exchange.
No gifts, to goods, to demonstrations of devotion.
Nothing but knowing you love me too.


Just your heart in exchange for mine.

This is from the beautiful movie Stardust.

I have literally sat here for 6 hours doing this because our computer is SO SLOW when it comes to weheartit.com. That's where all the pictures are from, BTW. Well I also watched 10 things I hate about you and I'm all filed with adorableosity, but still.

But I love this quote.

This is going to sound a bit dumb, but can you explain how you got those images from we heart it onto your blog?

because for me we heart it only ever lets me look at the photos in the squares but i can never seem to get beyond it, to the actual images, and to be able to save them to my computer and link to them etc etc.

am i missing something really obvious???

beautiful post by the way!

hmmm i had another go at we heart it and i think it's something to do with the fact that my computer is old and dying. Usually it only lets me see the lists of 20 photos in squares and then when i click a photo it takes me to another page of more squares and so on, but a couple of times it let me see actual images. Bah. Stupid computer. But thanks for your help :)
