Just like there's no need not to acknowledge an underground tremor, a possible sand storm or the best cake you've had in ages. There's no shame in acknowledging the command in his eyes. They owned everything they fell on big or small. They pierced through the flesh reaching some place deep and unexplored. It felt like an exorcism, something taking away from you what you withhold.
He was like things I have read in books or heard in the lyrics of the most romantic- to the point of discomfort- songs.
It is great to have known someone with this amount of magnetism, to have seen them at close quarters.
The world seems to be rolling out a menagrie of creatures not characterized as good and bad but wild tame, savage and passionate, warm and angry before me. He was just one of the beings who crossed my path and enriched it to a small but meaningful extent. His eyes demanded to be felt -an unseen primordial force like gravity irrevocably there!
Ever wonder why you seem to keep attracting the same people over and over again? Maybe it's YOU. From the red flags to even the same zodiac signs, I too followed a pattern I subconsciously wanted to ignore but I then realized I was the one they had in common. I'm learning and growing, letting shit go and letting God do his thing- it's so much easier said than done when people say "if you don't love yourself, nobody will." That's why I go SO hard for myself- I gotta set the standard for everyone else.

ONE DAY someone who you used to exchange laughs with becomes someone you can't even exchange a glance at anymore.
Someone who you knew where every freckle and every crevice lay upon their face - only to become a face that of a stranger's.
The same person who was once the home and safety net of your deepest darkest secrets - but now the both of you have not one word to say to one another.
They watched you grow and you watched them change - at the same pace but who knew that the both of you were going in different directions.
You imagined having a family together and he couldn't imagine a life without you.
But pride was the culprit and ego was the mastermind behind our downfall.
This wasn't meant to be a mistake - for it was a distraction from reality.
Not every path crossed with someone is meant to be walked together forever.
Savor the could be's for as long as they are meant to be in your life - do not regret the ones who come standard with an abrupt ending.
Every distraction has its purpose - keep riding the waves darling.
One day surely you will come to shore and the sun will rise and your heart will find the one who was meant to be yours all along ❤️

el diablo ~ I know I can't be the only one that has endured this realm of hell. However I'm fairly confident that we have all had that one greatest mistake relationship (and/or marriage) that was so utterly and completely toxic that it brought out the absolute worst possible inner self. The perfect storm scenario where you haven't healed from a previous relationship and rushed headlong into another, blinded by white hot lust while ignoring every imaginable red flag. I won't go into details but I have. I endured 3 years of torturous hate. I continued on hoping things would change and improve, hoping her spiteful vehemence would end. I try to give people benefits of the doubt and try to give chances . However, in this particular case, nothing improved from these chances and I learned MANY valuable life lessons. Most importantly to heal first from previous relationships before dragging baggage into the next. Even more importantly, to take the time to get to know someone over time by being open and honest with them and letting it develop organically on its own and not rushing into. Great things come to those that have patience enough to allow them to blossom on their own. This relationship of which I speak almost destroyed my soul and my mind and she was the only person that I have ever wished all ill will upon (including death). I'll leave it at that.
