"I love you" he said, his dark brown eyes staring down at her. They were the words she had always wanted to hear, he was always what she wanted.

However, in the span of five years, crying because he had torn her heart from her chest she found that she had let herself be treated less than what she deserved because she wanted his love so bad.

The moral of the story is, sometimes your heart gets broken, and sometimes you can't stop loving the one who broke you but that everything will come together in the end. Eventually seeing him won't make your heart slam against your ribcage, and his smile won't make your hands shake.

Eventually, you'll see him with someone else, and be happy it isn't you.
