Love is out there looking for us while we look for it. Usually it comes when we are not looking. It comes and destroys normalcy and logic. Logic and love don’t exist together. Sometimes love comes and we are not ready. Maybe they are not ready. I don’t think I’m ever ready for disruption. I like the waterfalls I’m used to, but in a sense I knew there was something out there waiting for me. I don’t want it, but it won’t go away. I tried everyday until I cried it away. Really all I did was give it a bigger space. The more I tried to erase, the more it took up space. I’m still at odds with it because it was easy before, but maybe this time it is more.
