“you are worth the wait”

he was patient with her; he lulled her with his honest eyes, and he seduced her not with his body or lips, but with his heart. he shed his insecurities before her in a tease; layers and layers unwind with each declaration. and the show of vulnerability, the great reveal of honesty, won her almost immediately. ...

Just love

Love when the lights are Off and the music has gone silent. Love when the room is empty. Love when you are standing Alone in front of the mirror.
