We were barley seventeen, and we had the whole night ahead of us. We were caught up in being rebellious and getting our minds off what really hurt us the most at that time. We drank, till every ounce of care was gone. We both hurt each other in the past. We were barely able to speak to each other without wanting to just fight with one another. We didn’t come to open old wounds. We came to let go of the past, but we really weren’t expecting how drastically things were about to change.
I wasn’t exactly what you would like to call “the right state of mind” and you weren’t either. You took my hand down every step, it’s amazing we actually survived through it. I sat down, barely even able to keep my posture. We both went in to kiss each other, and that’s the moment that changed everything. We woke up next to each other, with not a regret in the world. You grabbed my waist, to pull me closer, not for a kiss, but simply just to hold. We did care about each other, more than anyone could possibly know. We didnt need to tell each other, but a simple touch, revealed it. We may have had a complicated life together, but non of that mattered anymore. You and I were what mattered the most. Feelings, mistakes, and the past all aside, it was us that we needed the most. We may have meant nothing to each other prior, but we became a priority after.
It would have been easier for both of us to give up on each other. To never forgive or apologize. To stay bitter towards each other, but it wasn’t worth it. Look at us now? We could have missed all of this… If we didn’t just take a chance. To this day, we still think how crazy it was that we actually didn’t like each other. We honestly couldn’t stand each other. Now? Now were inseparable. We love each other, through every struggle, we’ve been Hurt by each other more times than you can count of your fingers, we’ve been through everything that was meant to tear us apart, but we came out even stronger. Our only perception of each other was because of one stupid mistake, and a ton of fights. We never got to know each other for what really counts. I would have never known how generous, how smart, how funny, how kind hearted and amazing you are, inside and out. It took one night for everything to change, & it took one apology for both of us to be completely in love.
Think of this. You may hate the love of your life right now, but it takes a simple, “I’m sorry” or “I forgive you” for you to live your life with someone wonderful.
