relationships are complicated. romantic or otherwise.
we strive hard to keep them alive. new places to meet. remember the old places. talk for hours. be silent for longer.
i have had the best people to have come into my life. smart, talented, loving, caring, harsh when needed, opinionated. but, they still made/make an impact on my everyday life. many have been lost over the years. more forgotten. many more who have grown. many more i can't recognize anymore!
we all grew up, grew apart, grew closer. we will continue this rhyme for many years to come.
weddings to be planned, children to be welcomed. smiles, tears and much more to be done.
there are however some relationships, that become an addiction. you think you have let go, but u haven't. the real moment of letting go actually happens much later than the actual incident. and when you think you have let go, the other person hasn't. this is the thread that keeps the relationship going. suddenly, the moment comes when he/she decides to let go. just a small decision can change everything. and you realize that you never really let go, you held on to the other person's inability to let go. now, both of us are back to fighting emotions, logic and many more things to survive. to let go.
we all let go, of everyone, everything. some day we have to. but the beauty of human life is, we will never forget. never forget how we felt in those moments. how that laughter sounded. how that first kiss felt. how our cigarettes burned out while we were busy talking. we will never forget. we haven't forgotten. as time goes by, we will remember the tiny details, the colour of the sky, the coffee, the road, the rains. and we will smile, and say "those were the days my friend".
i can't wait to meet new people, make new friends, new romances. just to relive all the emotions, to survive. to love, to live.
