Time and time again we revisit old memories shared with individuals we cared so deeply for day in and day out. Scrolling through old conversations as your mind replays the motion pictures of the good old times. In the moment you do something that you thought you wouldn't be able to do again whenever that person comes to mind. That which you forgot how to do was smile showing the happiness you had in your heart as they sold you what now seems like lies of their love for you. What you wanted was something real, and what they gave you was a false sense of hope for something golden in their heart. The signs were clear in the beginning as they denied every bit of your beauitful soul when you've done nothing but show them the shining Sun behind each of your actions. However, that never discouraged you from continuing the journey to prove that you were different, and far more different than the people that have come before you. Your creative side awoken in your soul as you wrote love letters describing the beauty you first seen based on their appearance. Yes, from the soles of their feet to the last strand of hair rather it was short or long they were one of the most beauitful beings in your eyes. What you seen in their eyes when you spoke was a spark that you thought would last a lifetime. You sought out to make sure they were the happiest person to walk this planet everyday no matter the struggles or obstacles that came with that duty. The love you felt in your heart resembled that of a warrior striving for victory when it came to trying to conquer the promise of a bright future for the both of you. Your thoughts in the beginning stages ran for the high hills as you thoguht in terms of "we" instead of just yourself when considering making them apart of your life not just for the next couple of years, but hopefully the next couple of forevers. You loved them so much to where they felt they didn't have to love you back.

The wall they built strong and tall slowly cracked as the months passed through the both you like oil through the surface of the Earth. Your words of wisdom and positive demeanor is what kept your relationship strong. Ignoring all the signs of someone using you for your good heart, and not giving anything in return was what your friends tried time and time again to tell you, yet you let your ego blow them off because the picture of you two being happy together covered your eyes. Can't help but feel hopeless and heartbroke. It's true you find it difficult to just simply move on because the trail of tears, and feelings beneath that never escaped left you with a brain freeze on what to do next. You want so desperately for them to call you and tell you that they were just joking, but honestly it wouldn't be a matter because the pain you have in your heart would just turn your ears down low because you want the whole truth. Some say believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see, as others will tell you its not that you can't trust anyone, but no one can be trusted. Then something unexpected happens where someone comes along showing you a true heart filled of love and loyalty, but you continously push them away. Even as they try time and time again to show their good heart to you, you've had enough of the games and assume they are just like the last person. You try your best to keep that person at a distance eventhough they push harder through your waves of tears in order to find the smile buried deep down inside. You won't know it, but that person goes home crying not for they're own sake, but because they just want you to be happy day in and day out with or without them. There will come a time when you've finally decided to let down your wall, but the person that sought out to assure you were a little happier than each day before has finally given up. They haven't given up on you, but rather go on proceeding with the fact that they just aren't enough eventhough they've done everything they could to try to fill the voids no matter what obstacles that came with it all. They've removed themselves from your life as they feel that maybe they just weren't what you needed, so they feel you deserve someone much better. You'll go on to question what could've possibly happened, but you will soon learn something that is very deep that came with all of this. It's all about how a person leaves your life, its never about how they entered it. You could've gone back to living in depression, but that person left a note that explained everything to cure your confusion. At the end of the letter you knew your worth, and finally you now know that you are not alone... Words alone make you pay attention to the problems you've never worked through.
