Love Artfully

The first time I kissed you. One kiss, I was totally hooked. Addicted to you. I could never love anyone the way I love you. I’d follow you across the universe.

i-love-my-honey:

I wish you knew how deep my love is for you. I’m dying to live with you and to fall asleep by your side every night. You are everything I want, everything I need and everything I dream of. You are perfect. And you’re totally worth it. I love you. For real and for ever.

Distance is a weird thing. It can make you feel alone in a crowded room and yet make you feel loved in an empty house, just because you received a text from that very special someone. A lot of us see it as our enemy. You want to hold the hand of the one you love but distance forbids it. You want to feel the body of your other half against yours just to feel secure and safe but distance doesn’t want to hear anything. You want to run to their house when they tell you they are crying because you know only a cuddle could make their heart lighter but distance is here to tell you « so you’re gonna swim across the ocean and run 500 miles ? Don’t even try. ». But sometimes distance is also your friend. It gives you the opportunity to know your partner better than anyone who lived with them since their birth. It makes your love grow stronger. Maybe it makes you poorer because you have to spend a lot of money to buy plane tickets, but distance definitely makes you richer in every way. It makes you discover a new culture, a new country with breathtaking landscapes that you wouldn’t even have noticed if you had lived there since you were born. And sometimes it even helps you learn a new language. Distance is also here to remind you how much the time you spend together is precious. You want to make every second special and magical. Waking up by their side is not a boring routine, it is a gift that you cherish every day. And you know what’s better with distance ? The end. Do you often associate the words « end » and « happy » ? With distance, you do. And what’s great with distance is that its gift is eternal. You will remember until the end of your life how hard you fought to be able to hold the hand of the one you love whenever you want to and you will do anything you can to make your better half happy. You will never stop bringing them flowers without any special occasion and you will cook them delicious meals because you know how much they love it. You will put one hundred candles in your room with a trail of rose petals leading to your bed just to see their eyes shining. Distance reminds you that taking care of your better half is the greatest gift that will ever be given to you.

What People Don’t Tell You About Long Distance Relationships

Long distance relationships look so glamorous and envy worthy in movies. Almost like something that you aspire to have. Two head-over-heel in love twenty something year olds welcome long distance relationships with open arms in their fictional lives, while they stand precariously tall and on top of the world thinking that together they can conquer pretty much anything.

There are the cute sticky note messages left behind to read after the other is long gone and the dramatic goodbyes at the airport. It all sounds fairy tale like, until it’s not.

What they didn’t tell you about is the feeling of loneliness that you experience when you leave him behind as your train rolls out of the station and he’s not there beside you. What they didn’t tell you about is the physical pang of emptiness that you feel, deep inside, as your heart aches with the realization that ‘missing you’ doesn’t even begin to cover how much you miss him. What they didn’t tell you about is the countless nights where you toss and turn with only one thought running through your mind: how are you going to survive without him?

What they didn’t tell you about is how you crave his physical presence. What you would do just to have his arms wrapped around you in a warm embrace. (Picture the cravings a cocaine addict has for cocaine and you’ll know the kind of craving I’m talking about). What they didn’t tell you about was how much it would sting when you see other happy couples together, laughing and smiling and holding hands and doing all the things you wish you could be doing and experiencing with your significant other.

What they didn’t tell you about is the moments when your body collapses beneath you and you tumble to the ground, arms wrap around your legs in the hopeless fetal position but you don’t even notice as loud, uncontrollable sobs escape you while you’re left wondering if no relationship is better than this long distance one.

But what they also didn’t tell you about long distance relationships is how beautiful they can be, if you let them.

They didn’t tell you about how you learn to cherish every moment you spend with him, to memorize his laugh and the way his whole face lights up when he smiles. They didn’t tell you about how all of a sudden the small things he does for you from that text letting you know how much he cares, to that quick phone call after he gets home from work means the world to you. They didn’t tell you about how incredible it feels to know that somewhere out there, someone always has you tucked away in the back of his mind as you both go about living your separate lives.

They didn’t tell you about how his world and his happiness would come colliding into yours in the most breathtaking way possible. They didn’t tell you about that euphoric moment when he steps off the train and you feel butterflies of excitement and you don’t even care that you have the goofiest smile plastered on your face.

Because you live for those moments. The small, perfect moments that make long distance relationships worth it. That make you truly believe that there is no limit to how far love can travel.

Not everything can be felt and not everything will be ever understood.

—Santosh Kalwar, Obscurity (via observando)

"I will marry you
Because you make me
feel something…”

"I will marry you

Because you make me

feel something…”

When you’re in love you don’t have to do a damn thing. You can just be. You can just stay quiet in the world. You don’t have to move an inch.

Love

I didn´t fall in love with you,

I walked into love with you,

with my eyes wide open,

choosing to take

every step along the way.

I do believe in fate and destiny,

but I also believe 

we are only fated 

to do the things

that we´d choose anyway.

And I´d choose you;

in a hundred lifetimes,

in a hundred worlds,

in any version of reality,

I´d find you

and I´d choose you.
