We all have that person, or in some cases, those people whom we meet and something ignites inside of us. We are hit with the realization that this person has “that thing”. That FUCKING thing.
What is it? What is that obnoxious thing about them that draws us to them like a magnet? Nothing you could conjure up to describe this thing would even come close to what you feel about them. Boom. All it takes is an instant and you’ve fallen. Fallen for that THING.
I’m sure we’ve all been victim a time or two of this horrible affliction. I know I have.
Twice, actually. Awful isn’t it? How someone can shake you to your core without your consent.
What’s especially horrible is that often these people who have these “things” about them, don’t feel the same about us.
The ones we want the most don’t want us back. The worst feeling in the world.
Why? Because no one ever measures up. Anyone you encounter after you’ll only compare to the one who had that thing. Anyone you encounter after will force you to see that they’re indeed lacking of that very thing.
No matter how hard you try, no matter how much you tell yourself they’ve got it, you’ll always know deep down that it isn’t true.
And so here you are…. wondering why you even met this person whom you cannot shake for anything.
Like I said, it’s happened to me twice. To be fair though, the first one was the doozy. After him I never thought i’d see anyone with that thing again.
Until I met the second. It was out of nowhere, like they always are.
Sneaky, aren’t they?
So this is to all of you out there struggling like I am over someone who just didn’t return your feelings. I’m with you, right there in the same boat. I know you know what i’m talking about …
they’ve just got that thing that you can’t put your finger on and it kills you. Because who knows if you’ll find another. It’s 100% out of your control, too. It’s as if your soul lit up the moment you saw them.
That fucking THING..
