I loved you in a way I never thought I was capable of -bare, walls down, vulnerable yet fearless.
I loved you despite your jealousy, your screaming silence and the suffocating tears that came flooding with them.
You loved me in a way I have never been loved – real, like home, comfortable yet consuming.
You loved me despite my mood swings, my exhausting doubts and our almost break-ups.
But we were too young to know how to keep the love in our hands from strangling the life out of us, and to understand that being terrified of losing each other wasn’t enough to save this relationship.
