There’s no win-win here. There never is. Either your heart is safe but completely deprived of experiencing great love, or your heart is in more danger than it’s ever been while simultaneously experiencing a feeling so special that it’s practically impossible to put into words.
When he was around the sun burned brighter and the world turned faster, he became the center of your tiny world and made it feel so much bigger. He didn’t have to do much, but the feelings he gave you were immense and as hard you tried, you couldn’t push them away.
He cared about me, as more than just a friend. More than he was expecting to. I was just as much of a surprise in his life as he was in mine. Neither of us were planning to fall for each other.
This girl endured taunts and jeers and borderline bullying for being “stupid” when she was actually really smart.
And if it isn’t ironic, then I don’t know what the hell type of a figurative language can describe this. Who are you? But then, I fell for you.
I hope that one day someone will ask you if you have any regrets and my name is the first thing that pops into your mind.
Don’t stay for the sake of love. I know it is easier said than done and you’re still probably madly in love with them. But remember, love can drive one insane. Love makes people do ridiculous things.
You are the reason I want to love again, the very one who makes me see love as a beautiful thing, that love is not scary. You are the poetry in my unfinished journal, and the story that I want to read forever.
I think there’s this misconception that there’s only one type of love. Whereas I think love has shades to it. And if I’ve only felt the light pinks or corals of it, I’m okay with that. It means I’m saving up for the deepest magenta thing you’ve ever seen.
I am no longer the insecure and broken little girl who fell in love with someone who didn’t respect me. I am stronger, wiser, and more confident about what I have to offer the world. I know better than to settle for mediocrity in relationships, and I refuse to let the fire burning brightly within me fizzle out at the hands of someone else.
