Suddenly you reach the point when you understand that those things that you have been spending so much time thinking about, truly have no meaning. The significance of these things is that they have caused you much unneeded stress, and life would be so much easier if you just lay those things to rest. I know what it is to feel love, to be happy. And I now I understand the importance of learning to appreciate the present. I no longer look to the future to find answers to the things I have yet to live through yet. I just now know, here in this moment, that I am prepared to live. Put my energy into what makes me happy and understand that by doing that I am on the path to achieving great things. I don’t need to have the answers now or strive to control the situation. I just need to be happy with the life that I have and know that whatever is meant to happen will happen in its own time. Now is the time to just simply be, feel what life has offered to me, and simply embrace it.
I have finally found some clarity, and I must admit it is truly the most amazing feeling.
I can’t bring myself to fall asleep. My heart aches. My mind races. And all the while nothing has changed. Be here now.
I marvel at the texture of his hair, of being able to run my fingers through it. The depth of his gentle, blue eyes with the hint of gold and green. The warmth of his flesh. The comforting smell of his body, his clothes. The clearness and closeness of his voice. How tall he is, how big—how he wraps his arms around me when I move to embrace him and how he dwarfs me, encloses me.
You shielded yourself away from all the signals and clues I left you along the way. We were falling apart, deteriorating from the start, and now you come to me surprised - you were always the reason for the tears and hurt in my eyes.
Suddenly I’ve become a part of your past - the part you will never admit once existed. At one time we both knew what it was, that it was full of promise for the future, but now any lingering feelings have been overcome with grief and pain.
