She stood out from the crowd because of that weird duck face she does whenever she's trying annoy me. Perhaps she actually thought she was. But that look was just one facet of a whole that I have come to love. I have seen even the darkness that lurks inside---and she has no idea how deep into it I was willing to go... for her.

Oh, sex was infinitely satisfying, I assure you. Seeing that naked body of hers alone---glimmering with sweat in the moonlight while she lay beside me---was enough to put me in a state of bliss. But I have gone beyond that, as I often tell her.

***

"Oh, you mean love?" she asked. "Love?! Really? Why? Why me, when my demons can manifest anytime and strip away everything that you think you love about me? In mere seconds! Where does that leave you then?"

Sarcasm has always been her sharpest weapon, demon or no.

I was tired of explaining myself. Yet I persist.

"Will I cease to love you then? Perhaps. For what benefit do I get from you, now that you've lost the WHY? Love devolves an...

6 years ago and it seems like the memory still still vivid in your head (and heart, I suppose). I could feel the poignancy of not having her with you now, being the star in somebody else’s sky.

They say love is a many-splendored thing but it has never been fair. Love makes our heart beat and it can also crush it into millions bit of pieces. I hope that your love to that person, whether it’s still there or gone, help you overcome whatever you are going through.

Seriousness aside, nice writing. It evokes pure emotion and the feels. Good job.

Sorry, I can’t hear you over the sound of how awesome I am.

Thanks. I appreciate it.

I realized that you can move on with your life, and even be happy with where you are now, but there will always be that part of you that will long for the one that got away. I guess that kind of rare thing stays with you for the rest of your life.

We move on but we never forget. Every person that comes into our lives, whether they stayed or not becomes a part of us. We use their memory or the experiences that we had as an armour - a shield to protect us from vulnerability, so we know what to do next.

But life isn’t about being prepared for what’s yet to come but it is to be enjoyed. Let your heartaches and TOTGAs be a nice memory of the fun and tough times together and be thankful that it happened. :)

I am glad she came into my life. Fairy tale ending are just that --- fairy tales. Reality deals with real issues, issues that could drive even the most lovestruck couples apart. Doesn't mean, though, that it was all for naught. At the very least, they make for good memories.
