Time After Time
You heard something that left a bad taste in your mouth today. You’ve been certain about only one other person in your entire life. You knew when he was sad, you knew when he was insanely happy. You knew it because like the Greeks said, your souls were one at the beginning. Said person told you today that he was going to date someone else because of something as temporal as distance. You wished him luck not to be polite but because he would need it. You needed luck and an extra cup to survive life trying to ignore desire. Survival. That is what is waiting for him in his new love. He only dared to live with you. He would deceive himself and his new love that you were a once upon a time but he knows as well as you that you are the only one who can dance in tune to the beat of his heart. Something about it is written in the stars. Probably the fact that you’re both compatible water signs. He told you of his new love because he wanted you to say something. He told you once that your words altered his life every time. He made a joke of it and called you a prophet. You said what needed to be said. Good luck. You didn’t need to tell him you love him because he knows it. You’re not worried that this love will get in the way of anything. It’ll just be like talking to him through closed doors or keyholes. Music flows through anything so when you talk he will hear but more than that he will listen no matter who is beside him. You know he will return and in the mean time you will miss him. You will collect bed stamps however because every lover between
you and him will be like a new city and you like to travel. You won’t sit around waiting for him of course not you’re way too antsy for that. Instead you will fall in love a million times over. You will both get jealous when you get with someone that isn’t the other. You will moan each other’s name quietly while you fuck the living day lights out of someone else. But when it’s time for the writing in the stars to end, you will find each other. This new love of his doesn’t bother you because it is not the end. It’d be too easy, too boring. When it comes to loud demanding souls like yours, the universe gives time after time. Lifetimes to explore how deeply a human soul can actually fall in love with another in spite of anything. You will fall in love with each other now, again, time after time. A ritual you both will repeat until death. This is how you fall in love.
