FC: Amar and Erin | Our Story | A Work In Progress

4: H O W W E M E T | September, 2011.We sat down next to one another on first period spare, and that was it | The first time we hung out we went longboarding and had coffee. We sat by the river and talked a lot back then. Our first "real" date, we went to the new Harold and Kumar movie and had Kinjo sushi. | O U R F I R S T D A T E
5: O U R F I R S T K I S S | We were wandering around the woods by your house, and got a little bit lost. We found a way back, but before we started in the right direction,you kissed me very softly. | We were making out in the backseat of your car and I think it just kind of slipped out, but the timing was perfect, just after Christmas. | F I R S T I L O V E Y O U
6: If I Had ADD If I had ADD, you would be my Ritalin As propranolol stops adrenaline From summer breeze to winter winds in between my rittlen How sweet the smell, how calm she talks Yet the birds move south as a flock But I'll stay with you until the end For without you I would sin Ritalin, Ritalin Oh, my Ritalin
7: A Metaphor for the Fall. He’s steadfast in a hopeless sort of way, unravelling at dusk brown eyes and cigarette legs; you know the type. Skinny and scared, sending you to sleep with bed-side promise, a lack of senselessness -stability, when you’re so unsteady unstable disabled in the haphazard moonlight. And he’s a bit scattered but you’re shattering in his eyelids and you’re not quite sure how to handle this- the changing seasons these shifting ideals -asymmetrical adoration. So you try a little too hard and think a bit too much, and like this shaking, struggling lust you collapse into rebirth; whole.
8: I think this was the first time we were labeled as "together". Tom's 17th birthday party- I'm a bit drunk here, but mostly off of being with you and how well things were going. This is right before you told me you liked me for the first time (even though you were so nervous you forgot). This was in-between writing poems and flirting, and actually "being" together. It was a lovely time.
10: Valentine's Day | Love Poem #1 I wanna love you like you’re growing roots along your bones That stretch into the ground and find home In my empty spaces And sometimes I wake up alone And grasping for fingers In those strangled awakenings From dreams -I miss you with each soundless morning Words sounding trivial, falling From my wine-bent tongue. Because, darling you are rosebuds in winter And nosebleeds on a lonely Wednesday You are dark chocolate sunrise and the most intoxicating prelude Ever played on the cello of my lips
11: The Black Keys and the Arctic Monkeys
12: May Long Weekend
13: It started with all of the makings of a horror movie. No camping spot, no camping experience, a van full of teenage boys, and me. The directions were sketchy, the weather wasn't great, and one old man forebodingly told us that the road we were looking for had been washed out years ago. Somehow, despite everything we were some of the first to arrive at Lake Koocanusa. It started raining and that's when I dug out my bottle of wine and wondered what the hell we were doing. We had a few setbacks that weekend, admittedly, and there were tears and puke, but I think it brought us together in a lot of ways, because at the end of it, after shivering side by side in our tent and waking up smelling of rum and gin, we still loved each other. We dealt with one another's morning breath and complaining and coexisted perfectly.
15: At first I was really skeptical of grad, and everything related to it. I thought it was superfluous and excessive. But, being there, with you and a ton of friends was amazing, and spending so much time together was perfect. Falling asleep at supergrad was even a highlight. I don't think it would be nearly as wonderful without you. (Without us.)
17: Aren't we attractive?
18: The Zoo! | It took us awhile to get there, but when we finally did, we had the perfect day.
19: (MBF Concert)
