I Love You Was Not An Option

in writing •  6 months ago

I knew love in the smallest things.


"Have you eaten?"
"What do you want to eat?"
"Let's take a nap. I know you are tired."
"You can do it. I am always proud of you."
"I ate something good. You might like it, so I bought one for you."
"I trust you."
"Please stop over thinking."
"Will you please sing a song for me?"
"I miss your voice."
"I just want to see you."

If I tell you all the things I kept in my heart, a million years won't suffice. They are massive stars tucked away somewhere. Hidden purposely: the things better left unsaid. It's funny how I'm keeping up with all of these emotions which are perfectly ready to surprise the universe any time of the day.

Big bang.

I could tell you where it all began and when did it start crumbling down. From the time we met until the time we parted again, images of you kept visiting my lonely soul at midnight. The cracking of your deep voice while it says sorry is on repeat whenever I justify everything you did: on purpose or not. But darling, despite all of the pessimism of this declaration, I knew it was love because I always go back to the small things that made everything worthwhile.

"I will always pray for your happiness."
because I love you was not an option.

I cannot agree more!

Wonderfully poignant, raw emotion, tearfully joyous and heartwrenching.

This is so beautiful just like you are.

Saudade is a Portuguese word I learned from someone that embodies this piece.


Thank you always, Mav! I also came to know that word in one of your posts. :)

Yep, same sentiments, @rigelmarco! And thank you!

This cuts my very heart. And yes it's painful...perhaps love is inexplicable. Those lovely moments were the best and those moments when everything started to crumble were the very time I learned what 'pain' really meant. Nevertheless, I never lose hope in love ^^


Yes! Let's not lose hope in love! That's the spirit. :) Thank you, @julsmlz! Pain is always inevitable in love. :)
