Love Like Fools (ongoing)
We all become fools when we fall in love.
It doesn’t matter if it’s the first, or if it’s after a recent heartbreak, or after we thought we can never fall for anyone ever again, or the last.
The first… yes, most especially the first.
You think you can handle it even if you know nothing.
You think books and movies and all that you were told could prepare you for what you would become when you realize you have fallen… but they don’t… you are never ready, ever.
Still, you go ahead and allow yourself – the giddy smiles, the thrill, the anticipation, the goosebumps, the butterflies, the shivers, the rush of blood to the head, the raging heart beat – every little strange thing you never thought you’re capable of feeling.
You fall, you love, you give in… and you keep loving…
Even if there are things you can’t understand…
Even if you know you’re slowly losing yourself… your heart most of all.
Even if there are things beyond your control…
Even if you know that eventually, inevitably – you will get hurt.
