You spend months trying to get over him. You convince yourself that parting ways was the best choice for both of you and you try to find closure. One day you wake up and realise that all your feelings for him, the love, the hurt and the hatred, have dissipated. You go about your life. He rarely crosses your mind but when he does, you smile and feel happy for him, knowing he’s happy with someone else. Then one day, after 8 months of absence, you see him, you spend 12 hours together and it all comes back. He looks you in the eyes, he holds you in his arms, he kisses you and you realise that you have been lying to yourself. The feelings are still there and the memories all come back to the surface. You know that you two are incompatible and that you cannot be together as one because your love for him is so strong that it destroys you inside little by little. But yet your heart aches to be with him. You wake up the next day feeling heavy-hearted and wonder how long it will take for you to heal again, or if you will ever be able to heal.
