Are there too many variables? Too many reasons not to do something? Potentially, what we have here is, quite simply, in its most purest, most accurate and dense form - a chance. That’s all we have. If everything is removed, if everything else around us is ripped away in a split second and all that is left is the two of us, holding each others hands, looking into each others eyes and just jumping for it, why not take that chance? Just one, just a single moment to remember why the best thing we do is remind ourselves that we always, always have a chance.
There isn’t anything I can offer. Do I have money? I do not. Do I have a car? That’s a negatory. I have nothing in my pockets and no feasible way to see you the immediate moment you need my shoulder and my arms around you. But what I do have is quite simple really. It’s not diamonds. Not a heart made of nothing but satin and superglue. At this present moment in time, it’s not a gold ring. It’s the most obvious thing of all, the best thing humans do and the strongest tool in our ever growing arsenal of positive reinforcement to combat daily existence. I have nothing but optimism. The glass is half full, to me. That’s what I think anyway. Every single day I will forever understand to help you, empathise, sympathise and take action to ensure it never happens again. I live in hope because it’s all I have and exactly what anyone could ever wish for. It’s something we all need, isn’t it? If I hope that eventually the world around me will crumble and all I see is you, just you, staring at me. Looking at me with those utterly bewildering eyes and remembering that through it all, the ups and downs, the years of trying, wishing, wanting. The infinite waiting, the lifetime of an alien and his blue box. You can’t create hope, you have every single aspect of me ensuring it will never disappear. I can simply offer you every single damn inch of me.
To quote the worlds most delicate and poetic wordsmith, Mr. Barney Stinson.
'You are the love of my life. Everything I have, and everything I am, is yours forever'.
Just one chance. One can only hope.
