{ LOST AND FOUND }

The day that he left she still remembered — the birds were singing but the flowers withered. The world had forgotten her Spring and Summer, it quickly skipped Autumn into cold, cold Winter.

But being alone she was easy to find, finally she saw how love is blind. Though she had thought it would be impossible, but someone else found her when she was most invisible.

Second chances are hard to come by; she still had those scars from the previous try. She patiently waited and took it slow, she had all the time, and well, nowhere to go.

He’s gentle, he’s funny, and he spoke his mind, he made her put all her past behind. She told him her fears, but he just quietly laughed — then he hugged her so close, and she knew it was enough.

It happens like this.

One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else—closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel—one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them—even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering—the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.

Though here is a word of warning—you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.

There were letters I wrote you that I gave up sending, long be-
fore I stopped writing. I don’t remember their contents, but I
can recall with absolute clarity, your name scrawled across
the pages. I could never quite contain you to those messy
sheets of blue ink. I could not stop you from overtaking
everything else.

anonymous asked:

is there a word that describes 'not being able to let go/stop loving someone once your relationship with them has failed'? i feel like ive heard something like that before but i dont remember if its real or not

Cavoli riscaldati is an Italian word which literally translates as “reheated cabbage”, and is used to describe an attempt to revive a long-finished love affair.

It is trying to restart a failed relationship — similar to reheated cabbage because the result of such culinary effort is undoubtedly messy and distasteful, and completely unworkable.

“It was a question I had worn on my lips for days - like a loose thread on my favourite sweater I couldn’t resist pulling - despite knowing it could all unravel around me.

Do you love me?" I ask.

In your hesitation I found my answer.”
