The girl who used to be infatuated by you no longer exists.
She stopped laughing when her drive was funnier than your joke, and you would’ve been nothing but wind trying to push her back. She stopped calling after 12 to see if you got home alright, rather than you making sure she made it to her own door.
You used to captivate her with blue eyes that put the ocean to shame, more vibrant than any sky she laid under, but she stopped getting lost in them. As time passed, your lips only spoke of words kissed by sugar and she needed what you didn’t have.
That girl who used to be infatuated by the idea of you, no longer, exists.
The girl who replaced her, well, she is fiercer than the ocean on a stormy night and she is stronger than the wind beneath her wings.
“I used to have faith in fate, believed it would some day be us if I played the cards right, or if I tried hard enough to be someone worth searching for.
Then one afternoon, I sat there alone with a pen in my hand and bleakness in my heart, and the thoughts of you stopped providing comfort.
You weren't elixir, but the plague I tried to avoid,” I said.“
“I wish I could speak to myself a few years ago. I’d tell her to stop wishing on every 11:11 for a love so futile, to let go of someone who made her lose sight her constellations and allowed her to see herself as a city night without stars.
I’d tell her that she was the universe he would never be a part of, and that will one of the best things she’ll ever have.
“I’m not sure if love is always enough. It’d be wonderful to think that if it’s one thing that can conquer the world-it’d be that, but with all the turmoil it causes, it makes me doubt it’s as wonderful as everyone makes it out to be.”
"Love isn’t always a movie or a story you can write in real life,“ you say. ” The disastrous things cause by it can be fixed by it.
How willing are you to do so?
You should try saying “sorry” to the stranger you bumped into while walking too fast, headed nowhere. Maybe you can give them a smile as you apologize because this world needs more twinkling eyes instead of frowns.
Call your parents and ask them how their day was - they always asked about yours. Call your mother and ask what she would like for dinner, call your brother and ask if he’d like to watch a movie when you get home because you haven’t spent as much time as you’d like together.
People are so bitter over their past, even when they are in a happier place now. Make amends to things that no longer are. Make peace with the past demons. Make peace with yourself. Be alright alone, by yourself, and surround yourself with the kind of happiness more permanent than the one you searched for.
Tell a stranger you like the color of their eyes or the way their dress fits them perfectly. Compliment them. Human beings deserve compliments. When the rest of the world is dragging one another down, tell a stranger they are going to be someone and watch the stars form in their eyes. Every single one of us has a universe inside.
Let people make you feel. Let life inspire you. If you are full of warmth, don’t look forward to Winter. Seasons come and season go. Allow yourself to be happy.
“You make me think that love can be easy, as simple as catching one another’s eyes from across the room, and writing stories about obstacles that we will both get through and learning how to stay together even when we’re apart,” I say.
“That’s what I’ve been searching for my whole life.”
