Sometimes you have to run away so you can see who will run after you. Sometimes you have to speak softer, just to see who’s actually listening. Sometimes you have to take a step back, to see who’s still standing by your side. Sometimes you have to make a wrong decision, to see who’s there when everything falls apart. Sometimes you have to let go of the one you love, just to see if they love you enough to come back.
Sometimes it seems the harder you try to hold on to something or someone the more it wants to get away. You feel like some kind of criminal for having felt, for having wanted. For having wanted to be wanted. It confuses you, because you think that your feelings were wrong, and it makes you feel so small because it’s so hard to keep it inside when you let it out and it doesn’t come back. You’re left so alone that you can’t explain.
