I haven’t listened to that song without breaking out into tears and crawling into a ball in the corner since April 16th. Every time I listen to it, all I think about is how I stood there in the crowd, so close to the stage, waiting for Ed to appear. And then he came on stage and it felt like watching Jesus come back to life because his live performance of Give Me Love was just so incredibly breath-taking and I stood there crying because I couldn’t believe that it was real and sigh now every time I listen to the song it just reminds me of that amazing night okay don’t judge me.
11:11…I just made a wish that maybe for once I could get something exciting to happen in my life. I’m tired of always playing it safe.
I miss the coastline drives, the wind shook winters. I miss the rolling hills and I miss the bay. I miss the redwood trees and the palm trees and I miss the valleys. I miss the annual roadtrips and I miss the sun. I miss how I felt different and I miss how we were all the same. I miss the diversity and the tolerance and the acceptance and if ever I could change things I would have never have left.
