always the runner up
but not close enough
you can always keep laughing
through the pain
“We’re more skeptical and less trusting, marred by our past and our growing knowledge of how the world will chew us up and spit us out without a thought. And so we just don’t “fall” anymore. We become comfortable. But I generally don’t do comfortable, in any sense of the word. So I’m on my island, alone. And that isn’t to say that I’m right and other people are wrong. I just wish we had more of that “fuck it” mentality and were less scared of the fall. I enjoy it.”
there is someone out there for everyone
a common refrain for anyone feeling lonely
but what if we were given endless opportunities?
that there are several someones for everyone?
a soulmate has been conflated to mean
one person perfectly suited for us
I believe we’re surrounded by soulmates
thousands of people that we could be with
but the less we learn about the world around us
the smaller our scope, a tiny chance at finding
one of the people we’re meant to be with
