From strangers, to friends.
Harmless flirting which escalates into lovers
Fights, make ups, break ups.
All the charms up his sleeves swept you off your feet
In a blink of an eye, you were falling head over heels for a complete stranger
When you love hard, you fall fast
You feel butterflies in your stomach every time their voice rings in the air
Every date seems like a fairytale you've read in books
For the first time, you believed that love actually exists
But good things never last.
We are all too familiar with this feeling of breaking, when your heart is literally aching
for the person you once thought you could spend a life with
All was lost in the rage of those bitter quarrels that seem so petty now
The beautiful picture that we painted - Was it even real?
And then comes the time to pick up all these broken pieces
You tell yourself to be strong, to never let your guard down
Don't be vulnerable to love, again.
But we never learn from our mistakes.
We fall, all over again, for that charming silly smile because deep down,
we still hold on to the hope that love exists.
For those who love the hardest, they break the hardest too.
Some heartbreaks leave cracks that could be mended
Whereas others might be scarred by the thought of it forever.
Thinking back, was it worth it to invest everything into something intangible like love?
It's the wee hours of the night now, I am up, jet-lagged and drowning in my thoughts.
23, hit me like a truck on how much I have changed.
The universe is so big, there's so much to dream of, so much to achieve
and nothing to lose.
Can you fall in love in a day? Yes.
Can you fall out of it in a week? Perhaps.
Was it worth it? Yes
I'm sure we've all been here before.
