In a needy heart, add a few hopes and dreams, chop finely
Add a year’s worth of high expectations
Crack some deep conversations, scramble well
A dash of missed calls;
A pinch of “She’s just a friend”;
About 400 hours worth of arguments that never solve anything
Mix, then create a well in the center and pour:
Countless sleepless nights
About a gallon of tears
All your intuition
Every negative conversation about your relationship, ever.
Fold over gently, pour into a mold of a good relationship, put in the oven and bake at 500° for however long it takes for your whole house to catch fire and burn to the ground.
