Love Fades

Funny how love fades.

You're with someone and every moment is filled with meaning and it's as if the two of you discovered love. You're sure no one has ever loved like you do. You feel sorry for everyone else in the world that your beloved is taken, but thrilled they're with you.

Then comes the drifting. Then the longing for it to be like it used to be. And then it's over.

Your heart breaks and you think about them every day, seemingly every moment of every day.

And then one day you realize you haven't thought about them at all. Before you know it it has been a week and they haven't crossed your mind. And you're thankful to be moving on. Until you realize that the same is happening for them.

We want to believe those we have loved will always think of us and, yet, our own experience tells us it's not true.

So, what can we do but go forth, riding on the backs of these mistakes, into another love?
