It isn't romantical in the sense of perfection. It isn't as if in this moment our love is more or less... Continue Reading →

Rain on my window.

It would seem as though the rain and clouds will never part. Instead of cursing this moment of rain, let the water stream down your face. Let the lightning bring moments of brightness to the clouds.

As He Goes
