five

we used to think five years was an eternity.

1826 days. 

43829 hours.

and a handful of minutes.

“we have so much time,” we said.

time to finish a degree, travel, make love, be free.

and then we’ll start our family.

settle down. in a house, with a yard. but that’s just not us. we’ve never been yard people.

five years to some is too much. but look at how this year is running. escaping. disappearing.

we’ve been married nine months, but it feels like three.

five. i’m not ready for five. let’s try fifteen.
