When I was just barely 18, I was madly in love with a guy. We will call him, “Tim.” He was madly in love with me too. We had been dating about 3 months, and it was great. He used to always sing a song he wrote for me, called, “Flow of the Heart.” He sang it for me whenever we were snuggling or just relaxing. He occasionally used some of the lyrics when he texted me. For example, “See you tomorrow sweetheart. And remember: “My world crumbles when you are not near, so, my love, follow me here.” -excerpt from my diary.
A few months went by, and we were still together, but it just wasn’t the same. I still loved him. He still loved me. But things just weren’t as romantic as they used to be. I didn’t expect his extreme romance to last through the entire relationship. But it felt like it was just gone completely.
“Is he your boyfriend?” My face was flushing. I was scared. But I put on a fake smile.
“Well, he’s kinda my boyfriend. We really really like eachother.” Her face was lit up as she was talking about him. She told me about how they met in their summer music class and how on their first date he sang her this song that he wrote just for her. I thought to myself, If you only like each other, then why did he write you a love song?
