With Time

This is a poem I wrote in the middle of math class when I realized that even after your love for someone has changed, it doesn’t mean you won’t love like that again or that you can’t love them again. Above all, find solace in self-love, even if it is scary.

it may take a few months

but you won’t love them as much as you thought you did

it will shrink; it will escape

this might scare you, freeze you up on the inside.

you might forget what it felt like.


it might hurt

but that doesn’t mean you won’t love again

or love him again.

because anything can happen

with time.

anything can happen:

love in new things, in new ways.


you can stop loving someone

and love them in a different way,

at another time.

soon, it will feel distant

those strong feelings you once had

will feel foreign.

talking to them will feel bizarre,

like you are talking to a new person,

going back to the beginning

square one.


one day, you will be sitting down

and realize where you are

and come to terms with the fact that things are not the same.

but most importantly

You will be okay with that.

and if you aren’t,

you will be unbothered and strong.

With time.
