I’ll Love You From Afar

I wish you knew that I love you. I wish that you knew how lost I get in your eyes and that when I hear your laugh, I know that there is no sound on this earth that could be nearly as beautiful.

I wish you knew that everyday I lose myself in visions of you running your fingers through my hair, complimenting my eyes even though my hazel eyes are not nearly as breathtaking as your blue eyes.

I wish that you could be my forever and my end and I wish that I could be yours.

Loving you feels right and it feels like I was put on this earth to love you this much, but I also know that we could never be and It’s dangling in front of me, just out of my reach and I can’t grab it.

You’re life is a little complicated and messy right now and I understand that. I don’t want to be the one to add to that mess. I don’t want to contribute to that. I want to be something great and I understand that I can’t be that for you right now.

You are everything I need in my life and you fill holes that I didn’t know existed until you came along.

And when I’m old, I’ll tell everyone how in love I was with you and how you stole my heart without ever meaning to.I’ll tell them that I admired you and that you made me want to be better without trying.

You are a fantasy, nothing more than that and I’m okay with that because I have to be. I love you and love is hard and I know that you don’t need love in your life right now. You need to focus on you.

Maybe one day, timing will be right and I’ll tell you how I feel, but that day isn’t today.

I’ll always love you from afar. TC mark

Never give up hope.

How do you come back from your lowest point? How do you drag yourself out of that black hole of nothingness that has consumed your life? For me, being diagnosed with Hidradenitis Suppurativa wasn’t easy. I now believe that if I can manage this skin condition, I can do anything.
