You always think back to the beginning of a love.
That feeling that makes your stomach hurt.
Simply because you can’t explain it.
Love in the later years is not the same.
It is a deeper love.
It is not boiling out of you, because that love has become so rooted in you.
Once rooted in you; never again can you not feel that person.
Forever in your memories.
Always great until the end.
Long after that it will hurt.
Then it will make you question.
Then finally one day it will be pleasant.
A piece of your past ingrained in your soul.
For better or worse.
