So you ask me “Why?”. Why the sudden change? Well because something went wrong, because they hurt each other, because there were terrible actions and even more terrible words, because try as they may, every intentionally right deed ended up shattering both hearts into a million crystal pieces. It wasn’t that they didn’t care about each other, they did, a lot in fact! It was just that they didn’t know how to show it anymore. Somewhere along the way, they didn’t know how to care for one another, they stopped knowing how to act, how to be better for the other, how to be there. They did the best they could and as it goes, some would say it wasn’t enough. But for them although it hurt, it was more than enough.
Some would argue that it was over, that it had been over for a long time now, and that it was just a hopeless case, that it was past beyond the point of no return. But ever the clueless persistent kind, never the quitters, the feelings were put asleep in a deep yet conscious kind of coma. But they never went away. If anything they learned how to survive apart. Truth is, mistakes were made, promises were broken, words were left unspoken, laughs were stolen, people were taken for granted and in the process hearts were ripped apart, but through it all something else remained, something stellar yet heartbreaking still.
An earth shattering revelation came upon them. Sometimes you have all the love and it lasts, it may even last forever, but other times it just hurts instead. No matter how much love you have to give, no matter how much love you do give everything hurts and nothing seems to work. It’s as if no matter how hard you want and try that person is not meant to fit in your life the way you want to, and you just have to let it go. And then there are times, when it is all of the above and more at the same time. You love, endlessly. And it hurts, endlessly. But you keep coming back for more, endlessly.
Because in the end, letting go is nowhere to be near. Because no matter what they do they always come back here, because no matter how many time goes by, you can still see it in their eyes. They still know each other like the back of their hands, they still understand each other as if they had never been apart. Their whole relationship is two faced. On one hand they are like day and night. Always together, yet forever apart. On the other hand they are like chemicals. Two part hydrogen and one part oxygen, that’s how they are. Combine these two and you always get water, every single time. With them, whenever they are together you get effortless happiness every single time.
