It's not the butterflies


It’s not the butterflies that tell you you’re in love, it is the pain. My heart aches for you while my mind tries to hide it. I do not care what anyone says, I love you, I can’t stop it, and I won’t. I think I figured out why I am confused, I think I figured out that I am in love with you. You are different. Even through all our disagreements and fights, my feelings for you do not change. I do not want to believe that because I love you we are meant to be. My mind tells me all the reasons why not, while my heart questions “why not?” It all comes down to whether I follow my heart or my mind. Nothing lasts forever and who knows if it is meant to be somehow everything will come together but for now this is the way it has to be. I am rejecting love again, that is who I am. Remember that I loved you once, I love you now and I always will. 



The exact feelings you have spoke of in this piece I have definitely come into contact with more than a few times. Love can hurt and ache, and through fights and disagreements andseparation- especially rejection- we somehow find ourselves missing that person; loving that person. This is a beautiful piece. Thank you so much for sending it in!
