At first, I didn’t understand how people would become so engulfed in those twitter or Tumblr love quotes. Love, I saw it as realistic, but I didn’t know I would actually feel something of the sort. I thought those consistent butterflies were all just fairy tales. In the beginning it was great, but sometime down the road I lost myself. I cared for someone so much that I forgot to care about myself. So when I felt like he stopped caring I thought all was lost. It hurts when you willingly place your heart in someone’s hand and the torture it with salty words and lies. How could I be so foolish to let him steal my power? I allowed it. This. Its funny, I still love him. But I will continue to grow. I am young and my life is just beginning. Love is a battlefield, and our hearts are our soldiers. I’ll take this lesson learned and become stronger. I deserve better. Something more, something good, something worth fighting for. Its time for something new.
