We all have them, the ones that you fell in love with at first sight, the ones that you couldn’t leave without. You took them home, made space for them in your tiny apartment, and laid them down with care. It seamed to be as close to perfect as perfect can get. They were gorgeous inside and out, they knew exactly what to say and when to say it, and they caressed your body like non ever had before. But over time you began to realize that this relationship was quite one sided. In the beginning it was all sunshine and passionate rainbows, yet you haven’t looked at them with the same eyes since. Now it seams as if they just sit there, taking up the same amount of space, yet in your heart and your life it seams as if they’re growing out of control, taking far more than you ever had anticipated. They don’t look same or feel the same, they do nothing to contribute, and quickly, they found their way to the bottom of your priority pile.
It’s cut off time. Sadly there comes a time when you must look at the ones you love and asses the reality of what is, what should be, and what simply may have been little more than lust at first sight. It may be hard, but you know, deep down, that as time goes on you will only suffocate in the unbearable heat of your own frustration. It’s time to cut away the old, and welcome the new. After the deed is done you will most likely regret it and immediately feel the need to sew the damage back together. However, with a little thought you will come to realize that even if you do mend them, and they occupy the exact same space, what once was will never be the same again.
