I don’t need you to complete me. I want you to share life with me.
Dear one, I know that you are here, and it makes me very happy.
Had a dream i had aids and so it was decided i would die/have a funeral because i had a terminal illness. was very realistic and right when i saw my coffin i realized i still had time to take control – wanted to be cremated, wanted to stay alive! so i decided to live and have a full life.

“…I married you for your beauty but you don’t have to be beautiful. I married you of your money in a way, the history of it, piling up over generations, through world wars. This is not something I need but a little history is nice. The family retainers. The vintage cellars. Little intimate wine tastings. Spitting merlot together. This is stupid but nice. The estate-bottled wines. The statuary in the Renaissance garden, beneath the hilltop villa, among the lemon groves. But you don’t have to be rich.”
“But I’m feeling a change. I’m making a change. Did you look at the menu? They have green tea ice cream. This is something you might like. People change. I know what’s important now.”
