I promised myself I would never fall in love with you. But it was 4am, and we were laughing way too hard, and I felt happy for the first time in a long time, and I knew I was screwed. - I would never promise not to fall for someone, because I don't know who that person could be to me. If you're meant to be in my life, I will let it happen. I will try not to run.
Never fall in love with potential. No more real than the characters in a book. I fall in love anyways. What's life if not a little heartbreaking? Nothing wrong with that, no need to pretend what is difficult, what tears us apart, what rebuilds us despite ourselves can't be beautiful too.
By some mischief of fate, we might only fall in love once. You know, that one great love old folks refer to. Many lovers may get into our lives, but there is only one person with that one smile, one kiss, one hug, and one moment, that our hearts will never replace. That person, usually but sadly, is the one that got away. That's why, after all the chips are down, we know, just know, that we'll never fall in love that way again.
