Lately I’ve been seeing the old you. Yes, the one I fell in love with. For a while you have not been your normal self, the one I love so very much. It has been over a year, and yes, people change over time, but not the type of change you made. I’m not sure how to explain it. It’s like the old you is glowing underneath but the events of the past year have put a veil of smoke over you. I know you are still in there, and it’s starting to shine through.
As happy as this makes me, it also scares the shit out of me. Not to say it’s scary because i’m going to fall for you again (because i never stopped loving you), it’s just going to make it last longer, and longer even more persistent. I had my love for you suppressed to a little flame flickering in the back of my heart, still keeping my heart as warm as it could. But now, seeing the old you come back, seeing the brightness in your eyes again and the charisma in your voice, makes this flame grow. I need to remind myself the fire can’t grow over nothing anymore.
