Would you rather?

I just have a very small thought brewing around in my mind today.

A friend of mine shared a very personal story of heartbreak and regret with me, and it made me feel a bit helpless for them. I wish I could be of comfort somehow. It takes a lot of courage to share your personal demons with someone else or write them down, because it means you’re facing them yourself, and then going a step further putting your mistakes, your regrets and your story out there, ready to be judged and scrutinized by the world. And I just think that’s really brave.

A little something I’d written a while ago seemed  to go with the whole shitty experience my friend went through. I think almost everyone goes through similar kinds of experiences and situations at some point or the other in their lives.

I just wanted to share it:

Would you rather spend one amazing night with someone,                                 Or years of heartache sprinkled with love?

Be the one perfect memory tucked away in the corner of their mind,             Sought out when everything in their life is in pieces –

Or would you rather be the one that holds their hand, gently tugs them back to the present, and helps pick up those pieces?

It’s just as tough being the imperfect reality as it is being the perfect dream.

Free hugs for anyone who could do with one or maybe two, or even more 🙂

    I would rather not give up on love. Heartache is inevitable but it’s rewarding when you work through it. If you give up when it hits, that is the end, on to the next part of life. That’s not for me. 🙂

      Yes, I think heartache is inevitable as well, whatever be the scenario. I also think love is as simple as it is complicated. With the poem, I just meant to say, that sometimes choices are very tough. Both cases, the one amazing night and the life-long partnership, were about love, just different kinds. And which way would anyone rather be loved…both ways have their share of flaws, happiness, dreams and heartache.

      Thank you for reading. It was nice to hear your perspective on this 🙂
