You sit there, stare at the screen debating whether or not you should reply. You know you shouldn’t because well they walked out of your life so you wouldn’t want anything to to with them. But you can’t help but be curious on why they sent you a text in the first place or what is it that they want. So you don’t know what to do. Should you reply or just ignore it?
When you try to pick up a conversation with someone you haven’t talked to in a while and used to be close to, but you notice that they don’t make any effort to talk to you and just push you further away to the point where you realize that things have changed and it’d be probably better to let go. People come and go, sadly. Even the ones you thought you’d never lose.
If I’d learned nothing else from my life thus far, it was that you don’t always end up where you think you’re going.
If I Were to Meet You Again.
There are some people in this world that once were an important part of your life. Though it may seem like you two are strangers that have never spoken or seen each other before, part of you doesn’t let you forget how much they once meant to you. Even though an argument, disagreement, or just drifting apart led to the disappearance of this person from your life, you are torn between wanting to run into them and never wanting to see them again.
Don’t you ever wonder what it would be like running into them again? What would you say or what would they say? Or would words even be said as you walked past each other ignoring all the history that stand between the both of you? Would you feel that rush of emotion as you realized how much you missed that person and wonder what could of been if you two stayed in each others lives or be grateful that they are no longer part of your life? Would you two try to catch up with each other and attempt to be in each others lives again, realize it’s too difficult to have the relationship you once had with this person, or just accept this person who once was your world was only destined be in a portion of your life?
It’s scary to think of the possibilities that come with meeting that person again. Because the person is not just another stranger or someone that you know nothing about; but someone whose world once collided with yours with such force that it defined you for the rest of your life. Would they even remember you? Would you even know what to say? Would you two be able to handle seeing someone part of your past that only now lives in your memories and forgotten photographs? What would it be like if I were to meet you again?
I don’t think there’s anything sadder than when two people are meant to be together and something intervenes.
