Absence of Faith || Columbine
You always hear people talk about love at first sight. You hear them talk about sparks, butterflies, and fireworks. They say that if you love someone, you know right away. I think that's a load of bullshit. I didn't love you at first sight. I didn't know you, and I don't believe that you can love someone you don't know. I didn't feel a certain way when I met you. I didn't feel fireworks or sparks. My palms didn't get sweaty, and my stomach didn't fill with butterflies. You were just a boy, and I was just a girl. And sure, I thought that we might be friends, but I certainly didn't know that I would fall so hopelessly in love with you. You see, loving you crept up on me. At some point, I knew that I wanted to be with you. There wasn't a big, romantic moment like there is in movies, because love isn't like the movies. Love doesn't happen at first sight. Love, like most good things, occurs when you least expect it.
