i know you, in the way that you are not yourself. you are a reflection of me, in all my imperfections, a blurry image of what i am meant to be. you are a reflection of me, and i am just an image of you. i know you, in the way that we see ourselves within each other. we see our own beauty and ugliness reflected back at us through you, the person who loves us unconditionally no matter what has happened or will happen between us. do not think for one second this means that i’m going to stop fighting with you about things like money and how loud music is and why there isn’t enough food left over from last night’s dinner because baby girl it ain’t happening.. but do know that when i get mad at those silly little things sometimes i’m actually really angry at myself for letting them get to me. i know you, in the way that i can’t help but get mad because of how much it hurts when you say hurtful things about yourself or act like someone else’s opinion matters more than your own. do not think for one second this means that i’m going to stop trying my best every day to be as non-judgmental and open minded and accepting of everyone around me because baby girl it ain’t happening..but do know that when i give dirty looks sometimes it’s actually really hard for me to see people treating others with a lack love simply because they are different from them. i know you, in the ways we try our hardest to make sure everyone feels loved by us even if we know deep down we will never be the kind of person to show love in all the ways you deserve. do not think for one second this means that i’m going to stop talking about how much i want a dog and how my house is way too small but do know that when i complain again soon it’s because part of me hates myself for giving up on something I said I would always have. and even if your reflection fades each day until nothing remains, the fact still remains: I’ll always know you..because there isn’t anything else left worth knowing.
