When I met you, I thought to myself this is it.

I was new to the world of relationships and naive.

I wanted a love that lasts forever. A love that even Shakespeare would write about.

A love that makes the days a little brighter and the nights warmer.

When I met you, I thought to myself this is it.

My days were filled with laughter and smiles.

Every time I saw your name on my phone, my heart skipped a beat.

When I met you, I thought to myself this is it.

Each passing day I fell more and more into this fantasy.

I woke up with a smile on my face and fell asleep with a happy heart.

When I met you, I thought to myself this is it.

Your smile brought one to my lips and your laughter joy to my ears.

The thought of being together brought chills to my skin.

Then one day it ended.

The talks, the laughs, the smiles, the conversations.

You broke down my walls and won a place in my heart.

then one day it all stopped.

It was complete silence.

I never thought it would happen to us, but it did.

The idea of being one became foreign as the distance between us grew more and more.

The same walls were built up again, only this time each brick was filled with hurt and confusion.

You made me question if I did something wrong to push you away? Was it me?

How can someone tell you that they love you one day, but walk away the next?

My days were filled with darkness and questions. Everywhere I looked it reminded me of you

The same person that brought me joy now brought me sadness.

The day I met you, I thought to myself this is it.
