“In the beginning, it was just
you and I against the world.”
In the beginning, it was just you and I against the world. We were free then. At least, that’s what we thought.
It’s strange now. Living this way. After all these years apart.
Even now, sometimes, I think I see you in the distance. My heart stalls and stutters as we lock eyes for an instant. But then the moment ends and it’s like you’re gone all over again.
I feel my heart break in my chest each time it happens, and yet, I move on as if you were never there at all.
To say that I miss you is an understatement. To say that I still love you is a tricky subject.
Back then we were young and carefree. But we were also reckless. I’m older and wiser now. And I know I’m better off living my life on my terms.
