Four and ever gaining.

How does one express what it is to love someone for four years?

How do you say that you love a person with four years of learning, crying, laughing, laughing, chewing and nubbing? I mean, how do you let someone know with the last drop of being that they mean the world to you, that you would swim across the ocean, climb the tallest mountain (with one hand, mind) and all the other sappiest, saccharine clichés that exist? Is there any way to properly express that? it is all so complex, building a structure around so many ephemeral concepts.

How do you show someone you know them, that they know you? Fox and I know each other so well that we can roll each other over mid snore without waking. We'll get the sudden urge to chew a neck or shoulder that we'll butt heads because we do it at the same time. We know each other so well that we die laughing at the sight of dentures. That is just four years, that is knowing and understanding and being there and love.

I've been thinking about it for a few days now, curious if it is possible to express it. Four years. That's just under twenty percent of the time I've been alive. How do you emphasize four years? The more I wonder the less clear it becomes. And in the thinking it is clear that I am, again, overthinking. That it comes from my heart to hers means everything that I've been wanting to say.

lady_fox. I love you. I will always love you.

It doesn't get much simpler than that.
