Love or loneliness

19 August 00:40

People always talk about love or lust.

But what about love or loneliness.

Do we ever just stay with someone just because we’re scared to be alone.

For the comfort?

You know when it’s love.

You know when you can’t stop feeling the sparks flying and the bobbles flowing.

But what if it’s just not happening. Something is not right.

But you stay with them because it’s better than not having someone there.

Better than sleeping alone all those night.

Comfort is a nice place but also a scary one. You quickly get used to it and it’s really hard to get out of.

Suddenly you start mistaking comfort and safety with love.

Suddenly you can’t picture you’re life without that someone next to you simply because you like the warm breath on your neck.

It could be anybody.

It just happened to be you cuz I got tired of looking.

Got sick of the game before I made it till the end.

So I stopped a halfway and tricked myself into believing I had won first prize.

But I didn’t.

Suddenly one day you wake up and realize you stayed for all the wrong reasons.

For the touch,

the kind words,

the attention,

the eagerness,

the accessory,

the role.

But it’s not him.

You can’t fake love.

You can’t fake real feelings.

Lust is easy to fake.

Comfort is hard to find.

But love it forever and once you find it you’ll know it.

– I don’t want to fall in love with comfort

  1. I really liked the point that you mentioned that lust is easy to fake but love deals with reality. Mystic are loves’ ways, one must never fear to fall in love thinking that ultimately they might end up being lonely for they might miss out on connecting with someone special. Believe in love, for every moment in itself promises a miracle. Thank you for sharing such a meaningful & insightful post! According to your convenience please do read some of my writings would love to know what you think about them 😊
