Love Doesn’t Always Win – Josh Journal

It was a serious relationship, if you knew the both of us, you could tell the love was as real as it gets.
We were already sacrificing a lot to be together. Theoretically, it shouldn’t work. But where there is a will, there is a way.
What we share and love in common were numerous. We were both in love with Liverpool too. What else could I ask for?

When you know the truth before you start a journey, you should ask yourself if it is worth it. They say the past will always remain in the past. That is true until the past is staring you in the face.
When she had to choose between the past and the present, it was inevitable.

The signs were already there. I had spoken to the one person who should know, and like a man, he had braced me up for the moment.
I took the journey to her house, knowing I was facing the gallows. She tried her best to soften the blow. Does the chopped head care if the cut was swift or slow?

With a heavy heart, I arose. My eyes were blurred, my legs weighed a tonne each.
The journey back home was the longest I ever took. To this day, I can’t remember a single thing from that walk, ride, or flight.
All I know is that I got home.
I was close to tears. My heart was contracting. At that moment, if you gave me the choice to never love again, I might have taken it.

They say the heart wants what the heart wants. Why did my heart want what it could never have?
All these years later, I still remember every detail. Did I ever stop loving her? No. Will I do it again if I had the choice? Can I honestly say no?
Time heals everything except heartbreaks. Love mends heartbreaks though.
It doesn’t heal it, it only mends it.
