globetrotter .

I'll see the whole world over before I see the day you lay yourself at my feet and say you're sorry for all the nights you kept me guessing. For all the days you didn't tell me the whole truth. For every time you watched me spell 'I love you' with my eyes, but pretended you were blind.

I'll see the whole world over before you'd think to call. Before you'd think to tell me about your new life, and job, and the girl you met at the bar who you 'guess is your girlfriend now'. Before you'd think to ask how much of you is still beating through my veins and know I'm lying when I tell you none.
I'll see the whole world over but you'll still be the seven wonders wrapped into one. You'll still be a country road on a clear night when every single star in heaven can be seen. Still two arms tight around my waist that no landmark or brown-eyed stranger can erase. 

And I can see the whole world over but I'll never find a place where you don't reach me still. You have tainted a world you've never seen with kisses I've never felt, and I'm not sure Earth is big enough for both of us. 

I promise if there's a way to Mars, I'll take it. 



  1. Unfortunately, I understand all of that. The space between doesn't matter when two people are attached on a higher level. Two becoming one is rather easy, but one becoming two, it's quite defeating.

  2. S.... I felt like you could read my mind... you have no idea how close your words have paralled my life. I have that exact relationship in my's over powering... :-/

  3. so beautiful and heartbreakingly true x

  4. the part about the seven wonders says it perfectly.

  5. There are some people that you just cannot wash off of your skin. Some people who make the Earth shake from miles away. This is gorgeous.

    Tightrope to the Sun

  6. It is beautifully said. but create your own mars. you can!!!!

    Don’t ever put your happiness in someone else’s hands. They’ll drop it. They’ll drop it every time.

  7. love is so addictive we struggle so much to let go.xx

    dreaming is believing

  8. I love the line about lying about how much of him is still beating in your veins. I do the same. That painful never enough distance. You'd had to cut part of yourself off to get rid of him. Or time. But I think I'd pick the knife. The latter is too long. Beautiful.
