it is hard not to blame people for things they didn’t intend on doing, especially when it comes to the matters of your heart and having the power to break it. sometimes they aren’t even aware they have that power until it’s too late. sometimes they never asked for the responsibility. but somehow, when they are climbing into your bed in the middle of a summer night and it’s too hot to cuddle and they still reach out to hold your hand before succumbing to rest, you have no choice but to slip it deep into their pockets and hope they will keep it safe.
and maybe they do for a while, but sometimes they can’t and maybe it is not always their fault because sometimes things change, and feelings rearrange, even though you never really think the people you love will.
it’s possible they never thought they would either.
