What is it like to be truly in love?
Well, whenever you hear the person of your affection's name, it sets your soul on fire. A little bit of adrenaline rushes through, your heart beats a little faster, and you have a warm sense of..
So, what happens when you're in love with someone that you cannot be with?
You have all of these same feelings, but there's a sadness attached to it, as if your inner self knows that, deep down, you probably can't, nay, won't be able to call this person yours.
That even if you were to confess your feelings, it would do nothing to change your predicament. They are still with someone else, and you are still alone.
So why do you keep pressing on?
Maybe it's hope for what might be, stubbornness for what you want, or determination to go against the odds, because life would have no meaning without a few risks.
After all, there have been miracles of love, you read and hear about it all the time: people who cross the boundaries and refuse to keep their love held down.
"But it's impossible. They won't love me back. They won't leave their relationship for me. Maybe I'm not good enough. Not beautiful enough. Not...perfect.
Because no matter how much I might love them, I can't convince them to be with me."
My child, those thoughts you have in your head, they matter not. If you would give everything you have, give your life, or even go to hell for them, it is true love.
Yes, you might be rolling your eyes right now, but you know it's true.
Keep loving, because even if you might not see it now, true love might find you too.
