Love makes my eye twitch.
Not the being in love part.
But the ending of the relationship part.
The releasing and letting go.
It’s like two kids playing tug a rope, who abruptly release their grip and walk away.
You wonder what was the purpose of playing in the first place.
No one won.
I know it really isn’t the love that does it, you know, makes my eye twitch.
It’s the stress of it all.
So if you see me out and about anytime soon.
Know I’m not getting fresh with you.
It’s just my eye reacting to me trying to work out the whole,
Yeah we love each other but neither one of us is happy so let’s just let go,
It’s complicated…bear with me.
I hate it when my eye twitches.
It feels so not normal.
But at the same time it’s perfectly right
Kind of like the semicolon at the end of a sentence.
You think maybe a comma or a period would work better.
So my eye will twitch for a few days or maybe even a few weeks.
And I will realize that just because I chose to walk away from the game.
Doesn’t negate the fun that was had while playing.
Then I will wake up one day to find the twitching has stopped.
Just like the ache in my heart.
