We’re Not Going To Fall In Love

We are not going to fall in love. We have no expectations, hence no disappointments. We are not obliged to greet each other good morning or good night. We need not meet for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We do not have to grab coffee at any time of the day.

We are not going to fall in love. We have no routines, hence no missing the things we got used to. We are not required to surprise each other on our birthdays, anniversaries or ordinary days at school or at work. We need not go out to watch the latest movie or catch our favorite band’s gig. We do not have to drive fifty miles out of town to just have a road trip with our song on the radio.

We are not going to fall in love. We have no hopes, hence no frustrations. We are not bound to comfort each other at our lowest points neither are we compelled to celebrate our highest ones. We need not be one another’s plus ones on family affairs, friends’ parties, school dance or company ball. We run our lives together but separately if that makes sense.

We are not going to fall in love. We have no promises, hence no dissatisfactions. We are not pressured to comply to each other’s standards. Instead, we can be fully ourselves without feeling the need to cope with anything at all. We can live with both our best and worst selves without being praised or criticized.

We are not going to fall in love. We have no feelings, hence no pain. We cannot hurt each other. We cannot destroy each other. We cannot break each other’s hearts nor damage each other’s souls. We hold nothing but our own existence in the other person’s life, and that is it.

We are not going to fall in love. We should not fall in love, but when the inevitable happens and we do fall in the cryptic trap of the universe, can we not fall out of it? Thought Catalog Logo Mark
