We aren't afraid of heights; we are afraid of falling. We aren't afraid of love, we're afraid of being heartbroken-of anguish, of being alone. We aren't afraid of intimacy we're afraid if we show our whole selves to this world and the world won't like it. That once we are open we may be left. We aren't afraid of flying-we're afraid of not having control if something goes wrong, we're afraid of dying,
Darling, I hope you risk. I hope you fall so you can only see the jump wasn't as big as you thought it was. I wish the ground to hit your feet and see your smile and your tears when you discover the space that was there all along.
Darling, I hope you love-love so hard you may grieve for years and not because you're weak or you're soft but because you opened your heart with ferocious might and once the salt of the tears has run from your blood I wish you to exhale and fall into the heart of someone new.
People leave, things change, you become lifeless, life goes on and you continue your journey likewise. But you know what shatters your sheer hardwork of being patient with your tears
That moment you are encountered by a mutual friend and they ask about your old flame.
It feels like someone just hammered a nail in your chest and instead of blood, all the bittersweet memories come rushing to your mind like a broken dam. And there you feel like kneeling down and crying your heart out. And there you see all your hardwork vanishing like the firefly in the jungle, and there you find yourself going back again to that lonely phase which you had recovered from all this while.....
Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star.....
All my life, I thought love could melt all the pain away, but it turns out even pain can melt all the love away. I am allowed to hate you all I want, but there’s no point in that. Go ahead and have the life you think you deserve!
I never thought I'd be the kind of person to say I can't be friends with an ex... but I can't be friends with you. I'm sorry - I just can't. I cannot sit across from you at a table and not want to reach for your hand. I can't talk with you
about mundane everyday things that don't matter and not want to tell you that I love you. Nothing upsets me more than the thought of acting casual' around you when I am so completely head over heels in love with you it's just not funny Im sorry. I can't pretend like we never happened or suffer the indignity of being downgraded to 'friends'. I used to be the person you told all your secrets to... how can you expect me to sit there and talk about the weather!? As it stands, I can't even see a picture of you and not get emotional... there's just no way I can be in the same room as you. I'm sorry...
You're the most amazing person I've ever met and it kills me to lose you from my life forever - but it's nothing compared to slow agonizing death of being close to you when I know in heart that I'm no longer close to you at all...
* and when i breathe you in, it doesn't just fill my lungs. no. because when i exhale, you would be gone. but you're not, even when you aren't near. and i've come to believe that you must have sank deeper in those breaths. maybe into my veins or perhaps part of you has settled in my bones. I am not sure. but what i am sure of is that you left pieces in me. pieces that speak to me in a language i've never known, but immediately understood.
There was something in her voice that was so beautifully different and i'm not even sure what it was. but i was sure that my life desperately needed more of it.
She saved the best of her for the heart that understood the worst of her.
…the sad part is, that I will probably end up loving you without you for much longer than I loved you when I knew you.
Some people might find that strange.
But the truth of it is that the amount of love you feel for someone and the impact they have on you as a person, is in no way relative to the amount of time you have known them....
I STILL REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I FELL FOR U.
I STILL HAVEN'T GOTTEN UP SINCE.
