“I’m not afraid to love you more because love is too beautiful to set rules and boundaries, to put restrictions on when and where and how much.

I’m not afraid to love you more because there’s no definition that can capture what it means to hold someone else’s heart in your hands, to feel their body under your fingertips, pulsing and terrifying and amazing and alive. There’s no words for the way two people’s eyes see into each other’s souls, for how they can suddenly mesh their lives and their happiness into one another so fully, so fearlessly, so openly, so incredibly.”
