I will choose you, even in the doubt. Even in the moments we both hesitate, wondering whether this is love. I will accept that we are flawed and imperfect, and still I will love you anyway.
I Will Choose You
I will choose you,
because I do not see another choice
that ends as beautifully.
Not another choice I would rather make.
I hope that you choose love again and again and again, no matter what has happened to you in your past. Don’t give up on it. Your entire being is composed of it.
The second we stop choosing the person we love, again and again every day, we have already left them.
I’m not the best at anything. But I can tell you, I’m damn near close to being the best at loving people.
There are plenty of other people who want to have children. I don’t need to be one of them.
I love what you say in our silence. When there are no words to be shared between kisses. When our eyes are closed and my arm is draped across your chest.
Thank you for choosing joy, light, and the higher route. Because hate is easy, but after all that, after all this. You have continued to choose love. And for that, I am so so proud of you.
So sorry to disapoint you, but I’m keeping my standards high. And that doesn’t make me a bitch. That doesn’t make me snobby. That makes me brave and courageous. Because I’d rather be single for a long time, than get mistreated by people who don’t give a crap about me. I’d rather love myself, than to be half loved by some asshole who only wants to get in my pants.
You choose yourself over love because you loved with all of your heart. You choose yourself over love because you know you did everything you could have done to make it work.
