“What’s it like,” she whispers into the shadows of night. “To love someone with your entire being and experience that type of love in return?”
It seems I’ve already lit the house on fire, but forgot I was still standing inside.
my nightmares petrify me
— yanking me out of sleep each night
rattling me to the core
and now this overwhelming pain
that pulls me out and consumes me
is the only thing left that I can feel
The spot beside me in bed
Still warm from where you lie
Only mere hours ago
But now you’re gone
And I’m fading away
There’s an unspoken beauty
in being in the presence
of those who make your
True love isn’t something that happens often.
For some, they may never find it. For others, it comes more than once in a lifetime. You’ll know you have it when you’re with someone and they don’t just make you happy, because plenty of people can come along and make you happy, but they make you the best possible version of yourself. They’ll bring you up on your bad days, celebrate with you on your better days, give you strength and hope and courage and newfound wisdom as you grow together.
They’re not just someone you’re compatible with and enjoy being around. If you’re one of the lucky ones who found this true love, hold on to it. Fight like hell for it every day. Don’t ever let it slip away. Because you’ll never be the same once it’s gone.
