the end …

and it breaks …

* a fictional story

How very fitting. The rain is pounding against her windshield as she listens to his voice break her heart into two … She rests her forehead on her steering wheel as tears fall from her eyes … he has brought their love story to an end. Her head thanks him for being the strong one … but her heart is in pieces. How does he expect her to walk away from this kind of love? To just let him go …? How can she say goodbye to this gorgeous man who she loves with all of her?

 

rewind …

It was love at first site. Sounds a little Nicholas Sparks, but it happened. He saw her long before she saw him and he was instantly struck. The way she stood and moved and laughed … she had no idea what was about to happen.

There was something about them simply standing beside each other that was magnetic. The draw was impossible to ignore.

And before she knew it, she was throwing caution to the wind … “let’s get out of here”. She couldn’t believe she was saying this to him. This boldness came from a deep ache. If she lets him walk away she may never see him again, and the possibility of never laying eyes on this man who has this instant pull on her heart is just not an option.

He took her by the hand. He leaned in and kissed her … it was magic. Their hearts raced as everything around them simply disappeared. They held hands and talked about what love looks like … they kissed … they talked about the kind of love they dream of … they kissed … they talked about meeting again one day … they kissed.

It was time. Time to say goodbye. She was convinced and hopeful that she would see him again. She fell asleep that night feeling his lips on hers, and wondering what this man was all about. This man who had absolutely turned her world upside down in a matter of minutes.

The rest is history really. They’ve never felt a love like this. The way they looked at each other … the way she kissed him … the way he adored her … the way he would drop everything when she needed him. They talked and kissed and treated each other in an incredibly tender and fun loving way … they had found a true, deep love. She placed her heart in his hands and learned how to be loved for the first time … ever. It was a natural love that just fell into place. It was honest and pure … it flowed through their veins and it was unstoppable …

 

today …

“I just can’t do this to you …” his words ripped through her. She’s had a broken heart before, a couple actually, but this was different. She was certain that he was meant for her. As the tears continued to fall from her eyes, she couldn’t help but think …

“if you love something set it free …”

And so, she will let him go. She will thank him for showing her that the love that she’d always dreamt of does indeed exist … and maybe, just maybe she’ll find it again.
