Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. They can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. And whatever their reasons you must leave. Because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. There is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. And there is the love that will be ready. Wait for someone who bumps mouths clumsily with yours cos they’re too busy smiling to kiss you properly. Yeah. Wait for that. It’s all right to love someone who doesn’t love you back, as long as they’re worth you loving them. As long as they deserve it. The world only exists in your eyes. You can make it as big or as small as you want. It is only once in a while that you see someone whose electricity and presence matches yours at that moment.
