My heart glows, illuminates, and radiates like fireworks on the 4th of July. Unconditional, incredible, indescribable love. A bond, I believe, was established in another lifetime. My soulmate I finally found. I thank God for listening to my prayers because they brought me back to you, the love of my life, previous lives, afterlives, and everything in between.
Yours,
Ivelisse

Connections that are severed are like broken mirrors. If it’s broken, you can fix it, but you will always see the cracks in the reflection. I don’t make many connections, so even when they are destroyed to the point that they are unrecognizable, I try to put them back together. Sometimes it’s okay to press that block button. Feel the heartache, cry heavy tears, and question it every day; until you don’t.

Why must we be so complicated? In a perfect world, you’d always be right by my side. Now I lay in bed tossing and turning, missing you, craving your cuddles. Your laugh and smile. The way your eyes shine when we exchange I love you’s. But life isn’t a fairytale, and love is a cruel, cold, and addictive game. One that I fall victim to time and time again. Trying and failing, never finding love, just a trail of heartbreak, disappointment, lust, and meaningless sex. Anything to replace the emptiness inside me, something to numb this unbearable pain. The eternal loneliness that I wish to escape.
