To the boy who never loved again,
When in love it felt like it is a perpetual, tranquil state in life, you live every moment, captured every second with utmost pleasure and glee. The whole universe stands up for you, stars align in the favourite patterns and life look right on. Sounds soothes your ears; sights fulfil your heart and every little thing around matter to you.
Just in contrast to this, today, after she’s gone, moved miles away and left you in solitude, the things that granted pleasure, things that yielded meaning to life don’t matter anymore. All of this elicits a thought that the whole universe is against you.
From having 100 reasons to live together to discovering newer reasons to stay apart and switch directions, life taught what heartbreak is, how it feels and how sudden changes happen bringing out unanticipated outcomes. The glance of her favourite colours reminds you of how she reacted when you presented her one, the smell of her perfume in your hoodie reminds you of herself, everything around you makes you feel that she’s right here, here in your room, here in your memories and here in your heart; safe and secure.
You can’t forget her and can’t fill the void she has brought to your life too. Yes, you can’t love again, you can’t risk your poignant emotions yet another time. You might feel that your heart is so tender that it can’t bear anymore heartbreaks and heartaches, vulnerability scares you the most.
But you’ve to think practically, understand that we are all pawns of time and every action in one’s life has a reason behind that’s invisible for today, but you later understand and reconcile yourself. Moving on and forgetting one whom you considered to be the most significant person in life is not easy as it is said, but the situation starts to heal gradually as you begin to accept the reality. Start fixing the broken pieces of heart with kindness and gentleness.
Remember, the love you had given, love you give come back to you after completing it’s cycle.
It’s okay if you don’t love a girl but don’t forget to love yourself.
That’s my first ever open letter. I wrote this sometime back and loved how it turned out! I had always been fond of writing in male perspectives. It makes me think outside the box and it’s also a simple route to emphasize feelings.
Thank you so much for reading! ❤️
