The one that got away

You loved him with every core of your being. All your fears, your hopes, your dreams –you risked it all to the fulfillment of one magical moment in your life.

And then one day, without any warning, he leaves.

After quite some time, you succeed in forgetting him and all the pain that he has brought. You remember only the good parts. You smile and see warmth in those memories shared even after it’s long gone.

Then suddenly, again without any warning, you learn something about him. He now has that someone who fulfills the dreams you two had once built.

All the memories come crashing in again. The good and the bad, you dissect it and inevitably picture the new girl with him. You come to the point that you nurture old regrets and blame yourself again for letting that one got away.

Well, maybe he was the one that got away. Or maybe he wasn’t.

Maybe he has hurt you a thousand times over for you to just lose faith on love and faith in people in general. But maybe he will be the reason for you to become stronger.

Maybe he left. Maybe he’ll come back. Or maybe he is gone in  your life forever. But maybe, you’re really the one who will never come back forever.

The one who got away has the potential to hurt you effortlessly. Maybe he still care. Maybe he doesn’t. But most probably, the only thing that hurts you now is your love for him and not him entirely. Well, not anymore.

They say that the most important thing about the one you love is your love for him. Without it, he is nothing.

So maybe it’s now time to finally go and make yourself the one that got away.

Not him. Not any other guy. Not anyone.

Let go of the one person who loved the most.
