Understanding Life • We Should Know Better

“There’s no reason to accept love, with no intention to love back.”

I wasn’t ready to love you when I met you. There wasn’t anything you could’ve said or anything you could’ve done. You gave me chances to have you.

There wasn’t anything you could’ve said or anything you could’ve done. You gave me chances to have you. Opportunities to miss you. Nights alone looking at my bed without you there. You gave me time to decide.

You gave me time to open my arms – but I didn’t. I couldn’t. We were lost. Our chance was missed. Our hands untied. If timing is everything than time worked against us and too often I look at the door and hope you’ll walk in, so we can meet again.

Sometimes it’s easier to miss someone than it is to love them.

To close the door instead of let them in. The idea of how things could be substitutes the effort of actually making them happen. In the end, people cross paths to teach each other lessons. To change each other. To simply show a different path.

If we refuse to give our time to someone so willing to accept it, it means they have taught us all we need, and we have to be fair in releasing their hand, and watching them go. For – we should know better than to mess with heartache.

We should know there’s no convenience to limbo. To the back burner. To ”

To the back burner. To “I might miss you if you leave.” We should know there’s no reason to accept love, with no intention to love back.
