Think of everything you would like in a person.
Think of everything you could desire in a person.
If you met someone who embodied a great many of these, how easily could you ignore your attraction to such a person?
How crushed would you be to discover you are the opposite of everything they desire in a person?
Imagine the very existance of your affection for said person was a source of distress to this person...
How would that affect you? How could you survive that?
How could you forget this person, delete them from your mind.. from your heart?
How could you settle for anyone who embodied far less of the things you seek without thinking of the person your heart so pulls you towards?
How could you truly move on, knowing that such a person exists, someone that your heart tells you is so right even when your mind has to keep reminding you that they are not because you are not right for them. You are nothing to them.
If only I could forget this person as easily as I forget everything else like forgetting to grab my bus pass on the way out the door, or taking my insulin shots on time or which day it is... Why can't my heart be like sand on a beach where waves erase all signs of passage and strike down even the mightiest sand castles and whisk them all away into nothing?
Breaking your heart is like breaking a bone... but your mind keeps picking at the scabs such that healing takes forever and the scars build up, from even that one simple wound...
