sometimes love isn't enough. (2017)

cherry blossoms

by kaylynn

the first flower he ever gave me was a cherry blossom.

i thought it was the sweetest gesture. it wasn't the stereotypical red rose or a wimpy, thoughtless bouquet from the local grocery store.

it was one, gorgeous pink flower,

that alluded to the beginning of the end.

he was everything i wanted.

intellectual, humorous, kind, passionate. he held all these traits and more than that, made me fall desperately in love with him.

intellectual, humorous, kind, passionate. he held all these traits and more than that, made me fall desperately in love with him. and he'd felt the same way.

god, it was like living a fairy-tale.

wake up next to the man i love. eat breakfast with him. laze all afternoon together in our bed. watch our favorite shows. make dinner together. go to sleep holding one another.

wake up next to the man i love. eat breakfast with him. laze all afternoon together in our bed. watch our favorite shows. make dinner together. go to sleep holding one another. it was glorious.

until one day,

it wasn't.

we'd began with disagreements.

nothing major. small, insignificant petty topics that usually ended with laughter over how ridiculous we sounded.

until, the topics became more serious.

abortion. religion. discipline. alcohol.

we had conflicting views, driving a wedge between us that started to become too wide to fix.

then, it became something,

then, it became something, we didn't want to fix it.

see, love doesn't keep a relationship thriving.

neither does the romance or the sex or affection or compromising on matters.

sometimes, love isn't enough.

and there's nothing we can do about it.

we're a cherry blossom.

so breathtakingly beautiful, that it simply can't be true.

so breathtakingly beautiful, that it simply can't be true. but like this delicate flower, it's extremely short-lived.

it dies. and nothing can bring it back.
