I have a fear of running out of words.
Even as I sit here now....
my mind an empty canvas.
Well, almost empty.
Besides the fact that HE is there.
He is always there.
Lately, I've been having the strangest dreams about him and I.
Dreams of a broken forever.
Those of a more realistic nature.
Last night I dreamed about his wedding.
About me sitting on the second row, middle pew...smack dead in the center.
Crying my eyes out as his future wife walked down the aisle to greet him.
In my mind Congratulations by Vesta Williams was playing.
I thought it would have been me.
Standin’ here with you,
I hope you’re happy.
‘Cause as long as I can breathe
You’ll always be the one for me."
It was all so surreal. The weird thing though....75percent of my tears were of joy. Happy that he had found someone to settle down with...someone he was willing to love properly. Even if it wasn't me.
I've never sat down and seriously thought about marrying him.
Not at all really....it only comes in my dreams.
My dreams are never just normal dreams when it comes to him.
It's either one extreme or the next.
Regardless, he frequents them often.
Sometimes I wish I never fell in love with him.
Just so that I wouldn't miss him so much.
I keep replaying 2 certain occasions when I wished my decision was different. Freshman year. What if I would have said yes when he asked did I want him to cut everyone else off? What if I had said yes, I only want it to be me? And what if I would have stayed...stayed when he asked me not to change colleges? Stayed and lived in this twisted fairytale he had planned out? " There will be room in my closet for you...and I'll have a drawer or something at your place." What if ....I let it all play out.
Sometimes I can't help but feel like I sabotaged this.
This...tale of love.
All because I was damaged.
Am I damaged now?
Am I doing the same thing to the new guy?
But I can't help that I stay on past loves for SO long.
Especially this time.
Because whatever we have hasn't really ended.
Maybe it needs to.
I'm happy with this.
BUT still, I dream of more.
Wanna be here, in his life...
but still, I DREAM of more.
I love him...
I want him here...
I need him here.
More than anything I wish I had done things differently.
Maybe my dreams would be closer to coming true.
