Have you ever wondered how different life would be, if that one person treated you the way you wanted them to?
Have you ever wondered where you would be, if you hadn't let go. If they hadn't let go. If they stayed.
Would you wake up in the morning, breathing the same air they did. And sleep at night under the same cool darkness.
Maybe where you are right now is hard, though you don't admit it. And all these people you see everyday don't really get it. The strange loneliness.
And maybe even the smallest thought of that person almost causes you to struggle to think, to eat, to breathe. And that's just the way it is.
But maybe there's another person out there, who will knock the wind out of you just the same. And for some reason, you won't suffocate.
Their presence just feels like fresh air. And they will treat you the way you want them to, and fill the hollow in you like a cup, and they won't even know it.
Hours with them will feel like moments, and maybe later, you will look back and remember how for mere seconds, with them, you were less alone.
And suddenly, you know you're going to be okay.
You're going to be okay.
