I absolutely loved Adrian and here are some of the reasons why...
- He is so tortured and broken yet deserves so much happiness and joy
- He is a master of words and thoughts. (His stories and poems. Gah! So beautiful!)
- He wants and needs to be loved so bad that he's scared to open his heart but when he opens it, he blows it wide open and it is breathtaking.
Some examples of Adrian's beauty:
"Let me bandage your heart the way you did my hand.""Haunt me,my little ghost,Possess me.Live inside me,And scare away my sinsUntil there's nothing left.But you."Skin to skinBreath to breathTouch to fellBody to soulBut onlyTo ChaseAwayYour ghostsMy little ghost,Still haunts my nights,Walking with stars,I reach out my hand,Hold the starsAnd hope, one day,They'll be you.I'm not ready. I'm trying.
"You helped me stop bleeding. You made my heart beat when I thought it was gone. All those things you said I do for you? They're nothing compared to what you do for me."
