Everybody loves writing about searching for love, about the inevitable journey that we all go through, searching through years and faded memories for the one who will stop time and cover us in love and tranquility. But no one writes about what happens after you find love. What changes? Will you still be the rebel that breaks rules in the name of love? Will the fire inside you diminish? We all believe that love will make us experts in feelings, that it will make us wise. But after finding love…I believe that you will become clumsy and at times even more reckless than before. You will stumble over feelings and uncertainty and knock your head against walls of mistakes. But for every petal that will fall down from your flower, another will grow back. Love is hard and at times painful but it’s also beautiful and capable of filling every crack in your soul with gold. It will make you scream and drown in oceans of tears but it will be the only thing holding your feet to the ground while your head is in the clouds. After finding love you slow down and enjoy the road.
M-ai luat de mana, ti-a lipit buzele de gatul meu, ti-ai asezat inima ta peste a mea si ti-ai trasat initialele tale cu degetul pe spatele meu. Mi te-ai daruit in doze mici si cu pasi marunti. M-am indragostit de tine la fiecare pas. Ai devenit scaparea mea dintr-o lume imbibata cu ura si egoism, mi-ai oferit un loc in pieptul tau si m-am scufundat prea adanc in inima ta. Pentru mine tu esti paradis etern.
It’s not about them or about anybody else, it’s about you! You’re so afraid of commitment that you can’t think straight. You just think that the other person will appear and magically make everything better. They can’t do that, they’re only human! Don’t indulge in sappy, romantic ilusions that have been imprinted in your mind by hundreds of rom-coms, that’s not what love is about! Love doesn’t consist of boxes of chocolates, drunken sex, pebbles in the window, and romantic kisses at the airport. Love is about sacrifice, about putting the other person first, it’s about the fights you have, the tears you spill, the doubts that somehow creep inside your mind, the late night talks and every other small thing that makes love beautiful. And even if sometimes it may hurt, it may make you insane, it’s all worth it. And if you’re gonna start running from love just because you think it’s supposed to be some magical, sparkly, pink potion that will make you fly above cloud 9 then you’re gonna miss out on an amazing ride through life.
When I first met you, you smelled like nicotine and cologne, I smelled like coffee and old books.
When I first met you, I saw stars in your eyes, you saw pain in mine.
When I first met you, you spoke so smoothly and easy, I was choking on my words.
When I first met you, you already knew I was the one, I denied it.
When I first met you, you were brave, I was scared.
When I first met you, you tried to get closer, I tried to get further.
When I first met you, you wanted to see the world, I wanted to hide.
When I first met you, you wanted to love, I wanted to disappear
When I first met you, you fell in love and so did I.
