it was so real


"I know it's over, and it never really began,
but in my heart it was so real."
[The Smiths]


it was so real
The truth set us free... but damn did it hurt.
We wove this fantastical possibility, and with every little glance, we became more disillusioned. All along the way, deep down, there was a sense that it was all a dream. But that wasn't the part of our hearts we followed.

We convinced ourselves that it was right. We convinced ourselves that it was meant to be. And nothing else would be good enough. Nothing else would make us happy.
Nothing else could make us happy. 

What has really come out of this disappointment is a strength that is learned through humility.

And ultimately, we learned that is wasn't about the people, but the notion of what we made them to be.

The notion that who you think someone is will make you happy. 
Instead, happiness wanders in unexpectedly. And it is so much better than what you expected and could ever hope for.
