As i wake up in the bed next to the man i have known for years, as i look at him, it feels as though he is a stranger. Someone i barely know, someone i do not love.

Is he not the same person anymore?

Have i fallen out of love with him and only just realized?

Am i not attracted to him now he has aged much more?

Why is it that yesterday i could watch him and feel so much warmth in my heart, yet wake up the next morning and feel absolutely nothing except for a cry to run? It makes me wonder what other couples think when they look at each other or wake up to one another, do we feel warmth the whole time or do we just get use to each other to the point it no longer bothers us ?

Yet any of those answers would not solve my problem. Do i leave? Do i stay? What do i do? I can't just walk out with the explination of \"it's not the same\" i feel i owe it to myself and to him to try and regain everything i once felt. How do you love someone, you no longer love?
