My words are nothing but scattered thoughts, that even I can't seem to understand. I'm just trying to say the right thing that will maybe intoxicate you, the way your words did to me.

Maybe we all have a lot of soul mates, each for a different time in our lives. Maybe every person we ever love is a soulmate in some sense, and that's why they mean so much to us, that's why they're so hard to forget. People change and fall out of love, but that doesn't mean that at one time, they weren't perfect for each other.
If you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself then get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer because there’s something inside of you that made you keep trying. Despite everyone who told you to quit.
Love is just a roller coaster ride. Don’t give up on love, in truth; there will be people that will screw you over. But don’t think just because someone pushed your feelings aside, nobody would be there to catch you again. Love is just a roller coaster ride, and there will be ups and downs. But at the end when everything’s done, you will always find yourself holding on to precious memories with the people that was there waiting for you and watching you go through so much.
The thing about distance is that it forces you to appreciate every minute of time spent together. We tend to take things for granted when we have them within our hand’s reach, we realize their value only when we see their faces blurring from speeding train windows or long for their touch while tracing miles across faded maps. The thing about living apart from each other was that even after we were no longer together, just the prospect of you being in the same city as me was exhilarating. Just the thought that you were breathing in the same air, walking through the same streets made my heart beat a little faster and a little louder than it had the authority to. After all you weren’t mine to dedicate my heartbeats to. At times like these, I can’t help searching for you in the faces of strangers. Scavenging through crowds for a mere flicker of you, a faint scent, a flash of smile. I had idolized you too much to not get excited about the idea of you doing even the most ordinary tasks in the same place as me. They say you need closure to hold on to your sanity. I am starting to believe it.
