When you first told me the words “I love you,” I was fighting the urge to laugh.
I was very young back then and that was the first time in my whole life that those three words were addressed to me with the entire essence of their meaning.
I was fighting the urge to laugh because I have treated those words owned by fools and now they’re for me.
I was fighting the urge to laugh because they’re so strange they give tingles which I cannot place.
But I didn’t laugh right?
Movies have taught people not to laugh at those moments.
But looking how messed up things are right now, how I wished I roared laughing.
