Romance on a cookie bag


Girl on a Red Carpet, Felice Casorati, 1912.


I want to spoil her. Give her everything that she wants but doesn’t need. I want to mend the pieces in her heart that have been broken by those who never cared what happened to it. I want to show her life through my eyes. Give her enough light so that she will never be swallowed by darkness. I can feel myself coming out of my shell when I am around her. I’m opening myself up to trust, honesty, and a passion that my skin has never experienced.
