XxIll tell you Im an orphan after you meet myy familyXx

Our whole relationship has revolved around backseats.
We met in a backseat:
We were going to see a new movie with friends
fitting seven
where only three
were supposed to go
you didn't care
people were staring
you kissed my cheek and tousled my hair.
One year later I fell asleep in hospital chair:
My aunt was in a car accident
I couldn't leave her
you carried me and laid
me in the backseat silently
whispering I love you.
One year and three months after:
We had awkward laughs as we trusted each other
and gave up everything in a backseat.
We have been together for four years:
Now I have taken a backseat, a backseat to her, the girl you say is just a friend.
We now sit in a backseat:
I remember the last four years
I look at you
and say its
Our last moment in a backseat.

When angry, count to four; when very angry, swear. And never tell your problems to anyone. 20% don't care and the other 80% are glad you have them

death and life the same but in diffrent forms so why try to change something you have no control over.

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing..

This is amazing!!! Keep writing, PLEASE!!! This is beautiful..... I kinda had an idea what it would be about, but I didn't expect them to break up in a backseat... =)
