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
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
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.
