“I want to stain every city with our love; I want to steal countries from your heart so they can only ever belong to us. I want to remember how alive and in love and insanely happy we were. I want to remember how my heart raced like the wind, how every morning I turned to look at you when waking in a new city, knowing it couldn’t get much better than this.

I want to disappear with you. I want the world to swallow us up.”
