how easily we let ourselves get entangled with another soul; that no matter how different their roots are, now the part where you’re planted feels like home.
and you never want to leave because that means unearthing all the moments that you’ve spent digging out the soil that once separated you; that means the depths of what you know have to go back to covered ground, for you no longer have access to the soil on which you loved knew.
