Love & Lust • Fate Has No Patience

Print

“I continue to lose you as I fight an impossible battle, but as fate has promised – this will one day make sense.”

I wasn’t ready to love you when I met you.

There wasn’t anything you couldn’t said – or anything you could’ve done. You gave me the chance to have you. You gave me the opportunity to miss you. You gave me nights alone, looking at my bed, without you there.

You gave me time to decide.

Time to open my arms – but I didn’t.

I couldn’t.

We were lost. Our chance was missed. Our hands untied.

Timing is everything, and time worked against us.

I left us to fate, and fate has no patience. No hesitance. No “we’ll see how it goes.” No mercy on the love letters or the people who sign them. Fate gives you a box of tools and the hands to use them. Gives you people to love and the hands to hold them.

I continue to lose you as I fight an impossible battle, but as fate has promised – this will one day make sense. And so, I continue to look at the door and hope you’ll walk in – so we can meet, again.
