I was lying on my bed , staring at the ceiling one night when I suddenly caught myself asking this question “why do people fall in love and they end up crying?”
Suddenly as I closed my eyes, I saw a vision of woman …
She wasn’t really all set when she met her waterloo. She was heading to his direction with her bare feet, didn’t notice the thorns she stepped on. Her feet was covered with blood yet she still managed to smile and endured the pain just to draw closer to him.
’twas when she entered into the realm of love and end up crying one’s eyes out..
I saw her tears falling on her cheeks as she was begging for his love to stay.
Again , I swiftly caught myself asking this question ” Why do lovers walk away from themselves when their hearts are breaking?”
They have been down in the dumps with each other’s arms and their only solution to end the heartache was to walk away from each other’s lives.
And while she was walking at a snail’s pace, she can’t help herself to look back and weep in despair as she saw everything vanished into thin air…
So, it made me wonder “Why does loving sometimes never stay long?” how was that easy for them to break and leave what they build for such a long time?
And as my thoughts were playing in the back of my head I saw the woman once again wiping her tears, but this time.. fiercer.
’twas when she realized a genuine love dwell and the phoney one never stay long. If it is love, it will never leave you like how he (Jesus) loves you despite of how ghastly your past was.
And for the last time I marveled, “why does gladness suddenly become sadness?”
Their happiness turned out to misery. Easily turned down by the promises they made. And her only solution to sorrow was to accept the pain.
Pain that indeed demands to be felt and sadness that needs to be experienced. For it is where you’re going to acquire courage in your future’s endeavor.
Someone’s always saying goodbye and someone will always be saying goodbye because changes indeed occur in any matter. It is like the law of entropy, where the tendency of all things on this earth is to disintegrate.
I gradually opened my eyes and noticed that I am now back to reality…
People are fond of fairy tale expectations and when their fairy tale visions fall apart, they are no longer strong enough to accept it. Love is complex and only two persons who is strong enough to endure the struggle are worth to love and be loved. Love is the greatest adventure and the best thing to hold onto in life is each other.
I may have a lot of questions about love, I may be wondering why all those shits happen. But I know, in time those questions will be answered, lessons too will be learned.
