What is love? Doing the unimaginable for someone just so they can feel safe? Doing everything you can to put someone else’s happiness above yours? What is love, not this emotion we have built up into something so unbelievably perfect that we can never reach. But love, the raw type the love that isn’t tainted by anything. The love that is pure, so pure that it doesn’t think of the consequences. What is that love? Is it making him happy when making yourself feel miserable? Is it putting his emotions and stability before yours? What is this thing that everyone so yearns to have. To feel, to taste, to touch. Love. What is it? Is it when you wake up next to him and smile and feel like you’d rather be there by his side than at any others. Is it the feeling you get when you know he’s around and makes you feel safe? Love is a over analyzed emotion that should not be thought through, it’s love, it’s pure and it comes with great benefits. But if it comes with consequences then, you aren’t as in love with him as he with you. What are you?
"That’s the thing about pain it demands to be felt"
I once met a man
.. So then just like that he said goodbye. No words were needed, no breath was taken, As he said nothing, he said goodbye. She slipped back into herself only to be consumed by the darkness living within her. She knew that one day she would be no more and she was okay with that. Because no one not even he, could save her.
I once met a man who’s only wish was to have me
He became the man who I wanted everyone to be
I once met a man who just wanted to live happily
He became engulfed in trying to find a happy me
I once met a man who wanted to give me the world
Without knowing that I needed it not
He gave me what he could
I once met a man who saw me as royalty
Who knelt at my every step
This man knew my every depth
I once met a man who made me believe that not all men are what they seem
I once met a man who cared about me so
He put my life ahead of his own
I once met a man who grew tired
Of fighting but never having the girl he wanted
And all she did was take him for granted
But the young girl grew to see
That it wasn’t he who needed me
I once met a man who now lives happily
And is now better off than when he first met he girl who wanted the world and couldn’t help but dream that one day it would become reality
I once met a man who changed my life
It’s sad how friendships just come to an end without so much as a mere goodbye. How could someone who was your best friend practically your sister just leave. If anyone had told me 3 years ago that you’d be gone I’d punch them and laugh in their face because what we had was unbreakable in my eyes, we had something so much stronger than just a friendship a bond that no one could understand. Reminiscing sucks.
Today I realized that we’re all doomed, doomed to suffer, doomed to hurt and even worse we can’t escape from out fate. But what we can do, what we should do is live every moment as if there were no tomorrow. Live for today. Love today. Don’t let anyone tell you what they believe love is, if you feel it, if you believe in it then it is love.
All these thoughts about love, all these images in my mind about how love is supposed to taste, how it’s supposed to look. Yet there isn’t a clear sign of love in my life. When is this so awaited for “true love” going to air it’s way onto my path? Love love love.
