In another life, I would be the girl who wouldn’t let her heart be torn by love. I would see trouble and know to not go after it.
In another life I wouldn’t admit I love you. I wouldn’t admit how much it tears me apart being away from you. I wouldn’t let emotions manipulate me, get the better of me.
In another life I wouldn’t stay up all night thinking of ways to make you notice me. I wouldn’t swing by your house at midnight to drop your favorite pizza. I would know what you love and yet find ways to ignore you.
But we are here now. The other life isn’t so until then, I promise to keep stretching my arm for you to hold, because your pretentious smile makes me believe the other life is real.
