they say that one day someone is going to look at you like your the best thing in the world.
that someone is going to look at you, and automatically know your supposed to be theirs. forever.
what they don’t tell you, is that you don’t know when that is going to happen.
or with who.
so your kind of stuck, waiting throughout your whole life for that moment to happen.
you go out. you dress up.
“maybe today will be the day.” you think as you try to do your hair perfect.
maybe I’ll meet someone, you think as you prepare yourself for that party.
to that lunch date with your friends.
to the movies with your family.
"maybe someone will see me."
you think as you pass by that couple holding hands
“I wonder how long they’ve been together.”
“I wonder if they’re happy.”
but then you start to think back- on those times you did have someone
“he was such a dick.”
“he never listened.”
“he was no good.”
but were you happier then?
what about when you think you’ve found it
when you have experienced that “love at first sight” experience
what happens, when the tables turn- and instead of you waiting for it to find you
you find IT.
what do you do then?
do you go for it?
do you sit there and pass it by?
oh goodness, all of a sudden- the person you’ve been waiting for- is yourself!
you go for it.
and you take it.
take it by the balls.
and stretch it out as far as you can.
and if it blows up in your face- then at least you tried.
I guess it does suck being rejected.
not feeling good enough.
but that’s when you remind yourself
that hey, it happens.
and I experienced it.
and if I can experience it-
someone else surely can.
so you wonder.
watching those couples go by.
wishing it would’ve worked out.
wishing you didn’t care as much as you do.
but the truth of it all
is that no one wants to be alone.
the plants have leaves
the flowers have thorns
peanut butter has jelly
even the gods- have children.
no one wants to be alone
no matter how much people enjoy their own company
everyone wants that someone
that’s going to make it work
no matter how difficult
they have a match
and if they don’t
they’ll find one
and if they still want to be alone
and still don’t want love
they’ll still find comfort in something else
in whatever they want
but humans need comfort
they need interaction
cause no one wants to be alone
not even me.
wait for it.
because one day-
someone is going to look at you and say
I wish I had what she had.
I wonder if she’s happy
if she makes it work
and suddenly, your back at the beginning.
and your the one people look at
that people want to be
but everyone’s everyone
and no one wants to be alone.
and if you do, you can’t be alone forever.
