This is for the couple that started off as strangers, became best of lovers, and drifted so far from their goals only to end up as strangers once more. This is for the feeling of uncertainty, of forgetting what it feels like to have to be independent again. This is for that feeling of effort wasted and time lost. For that realization of stupidity and naiveity. This is for the couple that believed in “forever” and “love”. Yeah, this is for them.
I’ve seen far too many relationships end up this way. Feelings of regret and grief and heartbreak and physical pain. I’ve seen too many people leave a relationship with holes in their hearts and tears in their eyes, asking themselves “What do I do now?” and reminding themselves “I don’t know what it was like before her.”
But this is the risk we take. This is the unwanted outcome of all relationships, but for some, it’s the inevitable. This is the kind of relationship that follows a definite pattern and cycle. Strangers, friends, lovers, and strangers again.
Keep this in mind, either you break up or get married. There’s no other way around that.
