Passions: heavily

She knew it wasn’t going to work out this time. How much different could it be from the relationship she just had? But she had enough reasons to answer the question “why she’s gonna get into this even though she knows it’s gonna be as lame as the other ones”, so she decided to give it a try.

She used to tell them to give her a “relationship, not a relationshit”. What difference did it make? It all ended up going astray anyways. It always began with the same fairy tale idea that some guy would become her prince charming on a white horse, that he would rescue her from the dirty dungeons and take her to a wonderful castle beyond imagination. Funny, ’cause instead of a “happily ever after” before the credits, all she ever got was “to be continued”. Seems like the so-called prince charming became a nasty toad in the end.

But she knew that out there, among those 6 billion people in the world, there was someone for her. That’s what kept her going back after so many heartbreaks: the desire for a real, true love, even if that’s a utopic thought. She believed her soulmate would pop up sometime, and that’s why she would try over and over. “You give a little love and it all comes back to you”, she sang along to the Coca-Cola comercial. Yes sweetie, maybe you’re right after all.

    Shit i feel the same way but i’m a guy

    It sounded like a free verse poem to me but i like the way you came across with the universal message of a common delusion that people have of love
