This is falling in love in the cruelest way,
This is falling for you when you are worlds away…
You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn’t true. I know a lot about love. I’ve seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate… It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when i see the way mankind love.. You could search the furthest reaches of the world and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love in unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable, and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and…. What I’m trying to say, Tristan is… I think I love.. Is this love, Tristan? I never imagined I’d know it for myself. My heart…it feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it’s trying to escape because it doesn’t belong to me any more. it belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I’d wish for nothing in exchange- no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.
You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
Know your limitations and then defy them.
