all reason cracks.
Emotions swirl in,
Faded memories come back
And shadows creep in
Empty spaces become dark.
Sometimes it does feel like a battle between that.
On one side, there’s the peaceful kind of love; the one that offers stability, comfort, and security. There are fights included, of course, but minor and infrequent ones. It’s mostly a soothing, tender love that dominates the relationship. And you think that’s all you want and need, until…
You discover a different side. It’s almost foreign to you and completely unlike the usual, stable type of feelings you get with that other person…but that’s precisely what makes it appealing. A rush. An unknown adventure, inviting you in to discover it.
Then it becomes a problem.
The tranquility of spotting your lucky bracelet vs the excitement of unfolding a new gift.
The hospitality in knowing that tomorrow’s monday vs the realization that with him, it’s always fridays.
The boring vs the new,
Truth vs passion. Which in the end translates to love vs lust.
And what sets them apart, is that love is always worth it.
