I pretend not to notice or care. That’s just life. It happens.
I see you reading, messaging, answering, flirting, complimenting, spending time elsewhere and giving all your attention away. I sit in the corner picking at my food wondering if you would notice if I stood to leave.
I watch as your eyes find pleasure from your conversation. Your lips turning up into a smile and as you chuckle I put down my fork and pull my napkin from my lap. You don’t notice.
You pick up your glass to take a sip but your eyes never leave your phone. I clear my throat. You don’t notice.
You sit your phone down for a second and take a bite of food. You finally look at me… barely. I stand up to leave. I don’t say anything. Neither do you.
When I look back you are putting your phone in your pocket because the one you are meant to be with is sitting across from you.
Sometimes your heart will avoid what is right in front of you waiting for the right something to come along. No matter how hard you work at trying to make it right you can’t. You can’t make someone love you if they don’t.
Search your heart for the truth.
There is perfection inside imperfection.
Don’t rule someone out because they don’t fit all the requirements and don’t assume if they do that they will be perfect for you.
