he said “run away with me.”
I looked at the people around us…oblivious to the small statement with such meaning behind it…everyone was just waiting for the first band to come out.
There was a couple next to us, the same position, the boyfriend with his arms protectively around his girl.
She overheard him and said, “Aww how cute.”
I thought the exact same thing. But it wasn’t the only thing I was thinking.
I wanted to say yes, the look in his eyes was so serious, and the way he smiled was so enticing, I love him with all my heart, no matter what we’d been through, what we’d done to each other, I knew we loved each other and that he was serious…I wanted to leave right then and there, hell, we were already outside of our city… We wouldn’t have to go back, I could forget about all the stress, the problems I have with my mom, and the shady people back home, it’s not like I have a future in Corpus anyway.
I have college i’m already attending here,
I may not have a family, but my mom is all I have and I could never leave her behind,
I have no money to start a life with,
I have no steady foundation to start a life with someone,
We have no set future with each other,
and although I care so much about him,
I wouldn’t jeapordize the one chance I have at making it.
I love him, I wanted to say yes, but sometimes, you need more than just love..because everything would eventually fall apart.
