Love is just a four letter word thrown around like a feather.
I used to throw it around without a care because, to me, it was just a word. At least, that’s what I told myself.
Then, one day, I fell in love.
It was the strongest emotion I had ever felt. It was like when you’re a kid and you got to sleepover at your best friend’s house on a school night. I felt like I was flying. Nothing could ever break me down.
Then, he ripped me to shreds. He tore my heart out and stomped on it without ever looking back.
That four letter word lifted me higher than I had ever been. Then, tore me down faster than I fell for his lies. It was the strongest emotion I had ever felt. Then, I felt the aftermath of it: heartbreak.
Now, I wonder how anyone could ever say that word in the first place.
Love is not just a four letter word.
