I feel like I’m losing my damn mind, like your face has been carved into my heart, and I don’t remember when and I don’t remember why, but the scar is there, and I can’t get it to heal. It won’t go. I can’t make it fade. And you won’t even look at me.
Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken.
Having a weak moment. I find you in everything, and you won’t even look at me.
After you’ve thought it all through. After you’ve decided. After you tell your fiancé you can’t marry her. After you break her heart. After you throw away four years together.
Before you shamefully tell your parents. Before you move out and she keeps the dog. Before you find your things on the curb in the rain.
The moment you are free to be together. The moment you begin the conversation that will last a lifetime. The moment your eyes meet and playful conversation takes on a new meaning. The moment you realize how close you are standing isn’t close enough. The moment the What If becomes What Is. The moment you give in to everything you’ve held back since you first met.
Lips part, hands touch, bodies meet.
The moment you realize it was worth it.
