It's an easy thing to write two people as perfect for each other, easy to create a love story.

I think about Win and Regine sometimes (read: all the time) and how it's one of the most remarkable things I can think of—two people, two poets brought together by who-knows-what. Two people who create poetry and music, two people who love each other so much at the same time. I'm sappy as all hell, but these two do things to me.
