“They” say love makes you weak in the knees. What about calves? I woke up this weekend and I could barely walk across the room. Anyways, if the knees are the first to go when you fall in love, what happens when love ends?
When you are the one who didn’t want love to end, the lasting affects can be especially traumatic. At least for an unknown amount of time. This is what sucks-the not knowing “when is this feeling going to end?”
Along with the high you once felt, the lows are just as deep. The astonishment you once felt and thought, “how did you get this lucky?”, turns to a stunning sense of shock. The shock waves ripple like a missile to the place inside, leaving you convinced you can never let anyone in there again.
This missile blew my soul into so many pieces. It was unimaginable that the pain would ever recede far away enough for anything alive to have enough air to survive. It would be a long while before an outsider was given an insiders view to this special space. To allow them to occupy me fully again.
But then one day it happened. The surge of vitality caused me to awaken and SEE. I could feel life beginning to pump throughout me.
It was because of you.
There are moments of realization which are fleeting. If you blink one too many times, they can be lost forever. You are a once in my lifetime moment. The time when the world came together just long enough to make me SEE.
The planets aligned. The force of it allowed the universe to resuscitate me. You brought back the innermost part of me, by giving me yours. You have my heart always. Thank you.
I love you.
