Sometimes, that somebody you lovingly called ‘The one’ is just not worth fighting for. The one you should be fighting for is prolly the one right next to you, unseen. Waiting.
When we love someone, it is in our nature to expect them to love us back just as much. Well, we’d even settle for a little less. Every small thing they do, we’ll take it as a ‘sign’ that they prolly love us too. every smile, every touch, every laugh, every text.
We live in this illusion that tomorrow, or the day after that, or the days after that they will rush into our arms and say those words. Those words we need to hear so much. The reason we wake up and go to bed everyday & night. The patience of people in love’s simply amazing.
But how many of us can face it, that we may never hear it from that person? How many can say, “That’s it, I’m out.”?
There’s always that, “Maybe it’s not the time just yet. They’ll finally come to it and see me. Really see me.” What if they’ve already seen you? What if they’ve already notice you? Only it’s not the way you want them to. It’s the way they want it to.
You try, you cry, you fight, you do anything. But still, it’s not enough. You feel it’s not enough. It’s exhausting you, entirely. And that very person will still feel the way they want to feel about you. Because you can’t make them feel they way you want them to of you.
Your friends will tell you to call it quit. Some may quit, but you say “I can’t. They’re the love of my life. I can’t give up on them.”
Day by day, piece by piece you tear yourself apart. Knowing it, but not able to stop it. You can’t and you won’t. Some will survive, some don’t in this game called love. Only you can decide, which one you’ll end up being.
It’s just…. What’s not yours will never be yours.
