Love after a heartbreak

I’ve already been hopelessly in love. I’ve already felt the heartbreak.

I think I’m in love again. This time, it’s more pragmatic. This time, I’m prepared for the heartbreak.

It’s not that I love him any less. It’s just that I know what breakups do to you.

I created walls to keep me safe,

But you crashed in within those cracks,

Spreading like a disease,

a storm within my skin.

Something that flows through my body

and soul,

and doesn’t have an ending.

You’re here, and I’m here. I love you with all my heart and soul. It’s just that I don’t want to be ruined when things won’t go our way.

Because, this time, there’s no coming back.

At this point, I don’t think I’ll be able to handle it. Of course, I’ll be fine. But with you, a piece of my heart will leave too.

But the truth is, I cannot live without you. I tried, I couldn’t.

So, I decided as long as we are happy together, I won’t question it.

Only if it was that easy.

I find comfort in your arms,

it’s taking my pain away,

I look beyond the uncertainties,

a sad smile and a broken heart,

You mended me like a piece of art.

Being with you was a choice I made,

I fell in love like it was my fate,

When I hug you and close my eyes,

I’m at peace, with no questions in my mind.

One smile, one touch, one kiss, one dream,

we are in this together till eternity.

I love you, and for now, this is enough for me.
