plot twist


I love her for disagreeing with me
when I say I’m not very adventurous or spontaneous,
for citing paper airplanes with secret messages
and the hidden passageways that comes to wanderers
as examples

I wonder if she ever resents me
because my story is built of choices
and hers of duty, necessity
because I am Bilbo, who sought adventure
and she is Frodo, who bore it


Yes, Andrew, I referenced Tolkien. Well, it's classic stuff, even though it's dangerously boring.

DANGEROUSLY BORING... TOTALLY the way I have always wanted to describe Tolkien (but have never been able to).

You're the best :)
