The music was loud and great, the alcohol felt tingly. I ran into you in the crowd. You were stumbling because you were so drunk. You cock a smile at me and I place my hands on your chest.
Falling In Love
Reciprocated love will happen, just not always with the person you thought it would be with.
Staying together is a choice, and it has nothing to do with romance or destiny. Romance is what we see in the movies.
Between the time you meet someone and the next time you hang out with them, you’ve already imagined the cute Instagram pictures you’re going to post of the two of you, how you’ll win his family over upon meeting them, and how jealous your ex will be.
The reason love has not showed up for you yet is because you keep plugging the wrong numbers into a worn-out formula that stopped adding up long ago.
I remember it so clearly it was almost like a dream. It was like life had a filter and “fade” had been added to everything I was living and seeing and feeling.
We are looking for an escape. Falling in love can be a welcome distraction from the crushing pressure of whatever our “reality” is back home.
Was it love? I shrugged at the question inside my mind because I’d never been in love before, and I didn’t know what it was supposed to feel like.
Whatever happened to the wonderfully simple yet sigh-worthy gestures I had once wished for? Now that I’m “older,” I’ve settled for canned lines and sloppy drunken kisses.
We’re all quick to assume that there’s no feeling like falling in love – but what we’re really saying when we claim that is, ‘Love is the most intense experience I’ve had thus far.’
