Love?

'I chose to love you in silence...'

Love?

I chose to love you in silence, because I was afraid of the outcome. I was afraid that you wouldn't like my flaws. I was afraid that I wasn't enough.

I chose to love you in loneliness, because I just knew it would never happen. I just knew it was an impossible reality. I just knew you were too good for me.

The first day I said I love you, our first kiss, the first day we held hands, the first day we hugged, was the best feeling in the world.

I always dreamed that it would happen, that we would become the happily ever after, the Romeo and Juliet without the suicide. The Bonnie and Clyde without the murders. But I guess that dream has come to an end...
