These feelings I cherish
These memories I keep
They all have something in common
They all revolve around you
You have never been one of many words
And I haven’t had a problem with that
In fact, they’ve had the opposite affect on me
I cherish them
They are who you are
While some find them odd
And others find it distasteful
I embrace them
In a way—
When our eyes meet
When I am the only who understands
It feels as if the ocean speaks to me
The ocean petrifies me
Yet you know that
But as long as you are by my side
The waves will be nothing but soothing and gentle
I will forever cherish these feelings
These memories I will treasure
So for now
While we still can
Let me be by your side
Because just like the ocean
The future is unpredictable
I have always been known as a dreamer. Love stories have been my weak point.
You know those endings with the two best friends confessing their love for one another?
I thought that one day that was going to be our ending–our ever after.
But when you brought her over for the first time. Your eyes were telling me everything, and I did not know what to do–how to act.
And when you pulled me aside and whispered, “She’s the one,” I wanted to run but didn’t.
For I knew this was going to be the last time, I embraced you. I looked at your eyes–for they are the windows to our souls–and knew I couldn’t compete.
I smiled, holding my tears, and said, “I’m happy for you.”
This was not going to be my happy ending but hers.
You were not mine to keep but hers.
A part of me wanted to confess and say just how perfect we were for each other.
We haven’t spoken since. I still can’t accept it.
But the day I come to terms with it , I will visit.
I still believe in happy endings and fairy tales.
But for now, there isn’t one written for me.
