It's not the goodbye that hurts, but the flashback that follows. More often, it's not a simple choice, yet instead, it encourages cutting a few ties and proceeding onward. Thus, a few people get to a place of apathy where leaving the relationship is the most suitable alternative. In fact, the process of falling in love is equivalent to the speed of light, unreachable. You would never know when you fell in love with someone or something. However, falling out of love seems to be impossible or implausible because the heart wants what it wants.
Things change, and people change, but "real" feelings never change. And sometimes it really sucks. Indeed, the change is the ultimate law of the universe, but undoing that change isn't a violation of any laws. Here, miscommunication is the crucial factor. Either a miscommunication between people or vital living organs such as a heart and brain. More often, the heart and the mind want very different things. This poem expresses a young woman's feelings about being trapped in a similar situation.
And She Fell In Love Again
She knew him for nine years and 18 days
Made plans for their future, apart now, no ways
Small talks and long walks, heading toward separate paths
Youngblood and the lack of mindfulness
Being in love with a crushed heart, she was speechless
Disgraceful, traumatic, and disturbing it got
Miscommunication of the heart and mind drown their boat
Broke inside yet with a slight smile and natural eyes,
She said, maybe he wasn't meant for her
Compassion, attachment, and regrets were easy to see
It's not the goodbye that wounds,
Yet the flashback that follows; invincibly
She should have stopped being miserable, and she did
Every day, pretended to be moved on, but did she?
Spring after Winter and Fall after Summer
On Friday morning, after two years; she saw him
Same wavy ash brown hair; shiny blue aviator,
Hiding his mahogany brown eyes, she described
He tried to talk to her, but she couldn't
She couldn't describe the retrouvailles
Delighted but wounded, tears in her eyes
On his knees, he begged her for mercy,
For acting impulsively, for breaking her heart;
And, leaving her alone
He missed her, and he really did
Unshaking, but abruptly, she broke
A drop of tear fell from her left eye
She hugged him so tight, like
Clouds that wrap around the moon
Her heart was beating faster as he grabbed her hand
Her love grew stronger as he touched her soul
When he asked: Will you be mine, forever and ever?
And she fell in love again...
In the train, we commute to work.
After the reunion, I saw her happier
Than she was ever before
She wasn't lost, just fell off the track
Thought her relationship was a mistake.
