And maybe I didn’t realize
I was in love with you before
because it is something
as natural as breathing;
you do it completely subconsciously
but once you start thinking about it,
that you’ve been doing it all along.
I am fascinated by the idea of falling out of love;
of finally being able to let someone go who has been in control of your mind for so long,
to free yourself and start all over,
or simply to experience how unrequited feelings vanish,
making room for better things.
