Smears of black mascara on perfect white lace. Smears of infidelity, deceit, and heartbreak on my perfect fairy tale.
Fairy Tale Wedding
Being someone who is difficult to love is not an irrational thought or an unfortunate reality. If anything, it is one of the most significant realizations you can make in life. You just cannot let it break you.
But just because she falls hard doesn’t mean she’s picturing her wedding day and picking out baby names. Just because she likes someone doesn’t mean she wants to marry him.
It’s not about the venue or the food. It’s not about the dress or the aisle. More than anything, to love and to be loved, I think it’s magical enough.
Work on finding yourself, and love is sure to find you.
I tell you I love you. We attend my best friend’s wedding and I catch the bouquet. After the wedding, I dump you again, telling you I’m not ready. But I come back, because I know you’re so wrapped up in me, you’re going to take me back. You stupid boy.
I have never loved anyone the way I loved you.
I know that I will not have to question your love for me because I’d be so sure of it, because you will be everything they were not. I know that you will make up for all the years I was heartbroken and all the times I was mistreated.
From the Little Mermaid to Little Red Riding Hood, the sugarcoated renditions we know and love come from much darker places.
For months I had been trying to extinguish the small shred of hope that he would wake up one morning and realize we were perfect together. But moments like this made it increasingly difficult.
