I took a chance on you. Against my better judgement I decided on letting you in. In so many ways you did everything right and that's what got me. Because aside from me getting to know who you are I would've never agreed on us. I would've never took the time to even see what made us alike, what made us work. But I did. And we clicked. You said the right things, did the right things and you never made anything seem forced. Being with and around you came natural to me and that's what got me to care more than I would ever imagined from myself. But I guess that's how the game is played right. Make me feel the butterflies and then capture and take them all away? Make me fall for you and then remove the very ground from under my feet? You were just so good at pretending like it was real. At making nothing feel like something and I can't even say I'm mad. Because the feeling was incomparable. Whether real or not it allowed me to feel something I thought I would never allow myself to feel again. And for that I am eternally grateful. So maybe that's the thing about chances. That we take them and hope for the best. And even if the outcome isn't what we wanted we take away good from the situation. A lesson, strength, a new outlook. Just anything. I may hurt from losing what I felt could've been so precious to me. But at least I'm wiser because of it. At least I'm a better me and willing to grow. Willing to see the best in situations and to allow myself to love and take chances because I did with us when I decided on you
