Love is like the flickering candle’s flame. At first it’s weak, but then it quickly glows becoming warmer and stronger as it burns, casting light wherever darkness grows. But what do you do when that flame is slowly starting to die? Losing all of the oxygen need to burn brighter. It feels like a wound that won’t stop bleeding, like it’s your last breath you’re about to take. Everyday that came you became more and more a part of me. Even when my moods would get the better of me I would always put them aside to see you smile. It was good, you made me happy, and I longed to spend more days like those with you. You used to love me, and show me how much. Now, where are you, when I need your touch. You let me down, and let me go like I never mattered, our love is a memory, that is now shattered. Why did you quit loving me, our fights were so few. How could you let go and just say it’s over? When I read those words to another man, telling him how you wanted to be with him and missed him, you broke me I was angry; I felt betrayed and lied to, I was out to get you. But then I remembered, how much I loved you, how much I wanted to make you happy. How much the flame inside me was burning for you despite what was going through my mind. While your flame grew for someone else mine only grew for you. Someday, we’ll forget the hurt, the reason we cried, and who caused us pain. We will finally realize that the secret of being free is not revenge, but letting things unfold in their own way and own time. After all, what matters is not the first, but the last chapter of our life which shows how well we ran the race. So smile, laugh, forgive, believe, and love’s flame will start all over again.
