I thought I’d share the poem I mentioned in my last post. I hope you enjoy!
-Love, Autumn x
The other side of love
No one tells you about the other side of love
They tell you about the giddy nerves and anticipation
The way he’ll make your heart skip a beat
They tell you about the endless smiles and laughter
The butterflies in your stomach
They tell you about the way you’ll feel in his arms
Safe, warm, protected… home
They’ll fill your mind with sunny skies and rainbows
But no one tells you about the other side of love
What about the uncertainty?
Constantly overthinking things
Second guessing every move you make
Afraid to scare him away
What about the longing?
For more of everything
His time, attention, Love
Feeling suffocated by your own insatiability
What about the distance?
How it feels when he’s so far away
Physically, emotionally, mentally
Out of reach…
What about how painful it is to miss him?
His face, his voice, his smell, his touch, his kiss
The way he’d smell your neck when he hugged you
Even the little things he did that annoyed you
And what about the heartache?
The way it feels when you get left behind
Haunted by memories
And thoughts of what could have been
Perhaps this is why no one tells you about the other side of love
