Selfless

“It was blinding,
your beauty. Your light.
And loving you was selfless.”

I swore to myself that I wouldn’t let myself fall in love again. Because loving someone only ever brought pain. But there you were. One day, you were there. And it was like I’d never seen beauty until that moment. It was blinding, your beauty. Your light. And I was the luckiest person in the world to finally know the true meaning of love. You see, it’s selfless. The ultimate gift, relinquishing your heart to another.

Loving you was selfless
and it always will be.

This was written for day thirteen
of November Notes.
