Devildog....will you marry me

Devildog....will you marry me? Pleeeeeeeeze? We could go off somewhere, a cabin in the woods, a mountain lodge, anywhere and we could write and share ideas. I would bring you flowers every day and we could watch the sunrise. Seriously, I think I just fell in love with you.

*My smile's wound so tight
it's breaking..
My heart's so broken
it's beyond saving...*

Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.
