The funny thing about love is people are always trying to tell you how to feel it.
"You hardly know the guy, you can't be in love." "You're too young to be in love." We've heard it all before. From my experience though,
Love has no time constraints. Yes, love is complicated, But it is also very simple.
I knew I loved him when I heard him laugh for the first time. when I watched his eyes light up, while he talked about airplanes.
I knew I loved him when he made me an egg volcano for breakfast and we pretended to be his roommate's parents. (even though I had never met his roommate before that)
I knew I loved him when I sat across from him on the dock and watched the starlight dance on his face. when I felt like I could tell him anything.
I knew I loved him when he told me he had to leave. I knew there wouldn't be a spot missing in my heart where he once existed. But a spot that he still lived and bloomed, where my heart still throbbed for him.
Where I still smelled his cologne, heard him laughing, felt his lips pressed against mine.
I would cry, boy would I cry. But I knew I would love him forever.
