You Were My Favorite Mystery

You never ceased to amaze me. It was constant. Right when I thought there wasn’t anything else you could do to prove your love to me, there you would go exceeding every expectation.

You were unpredictable in the best way possible and I’m grateful to have been loved by you.

There’s the bad type of unpredictability, but you were the good kind, the great kind. I don’t think you ever stopped amazing me and loving me and proving yourself and I adored that. It was flattering and you made me feel so special and I knew that I would never find someone who made me feel so many good things at once.

It was hard to believe such happiness existed, but it did and the secret to it lied within you. You were the reason. You turned my boring and empty life into something to look forward to. I wanted to be a better person for myself and for you and the way you smiled at me made every bone in my body shiver with need. I can’t remember a time before when I didn’t wake up to your snoring and I didn’t come out the showering to you scaring me and throwing your head back in laughter. I can’t remember what it was that got me out of bed in the morning, but I am extremely glad that you’re my reason right now.

You appreciated me and none of my good efforts went unnoticed. You were grateful for everything I contributed to the relationship and that taught me to be just as grateful.

I never could predict what you would say or do and it was the most confusing, beautiful thing I’ve ever experienced. You were the light of my life and it gave me a purpose. You were a complete mystery and I wouldn’t have wanted you any other way. TC mark

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.
