My sister and I don’t have many things in common whether its music or movies. I walk in my room and she’s watching some Lifetime flick on Netflix and it’s towards the end. I sit through it looking for something to relate but nope, nothing. When it finishes there’s an ad for Perks of Being a Wall Flower, but its for dvd only. I ask her if she’s interested and she is and I have that shit torrented in 2 minutes.
We watch it, she cries towards the end, blah blah blah.
Afterwards I’m playing my own long lost love playlist while she’s killing time before falling asleep and Akron/Family’s “Don’t Be Afraid, You’re Already Dead” plays in the background.
"Love is simple" is repeated enough times until my sister asks "is it really?"
"Yeah, it’s the most simple thing there is."
"Oh yeah? Do you love someone?"
"Well, I used to."
"What happened? You don’t love her anymore?"
"Well, I do…it’s just complica-
ok, maybe it’s not that simple.”
