I saw you updated your status on Facebook as, ‘In a Relationship.’ I bet you are doing fine. I must admit I am so happy for you; at least I am certain this time you might try to love her right. I cannot forget how much I gave you a chance but you took it all for granted and kicked it away. Fret not, I got over you.
I am not writing to intimidate you, no, but I thought I should at least let you know how things are for me ever since you left. You remember the many times we visited that park because I love it’s serenity, well I still go there with my new found love. You know I thought I would never go back there because it so much reminded me of you. But I stopped holding on to the old memories. I finally got over you.
I do appreciate the time you took me to that new restraunt across town. You remember how crazy I were over their boneless chicken breasts. Well, I still do love them so I thought I should introduce my new found love to the place. I can not imagine how much he got to like the place too. I noticed I still go there for their chicken breast and not cause it reminds me of you. Trust me, I got over you.
You must have heard that I almost dropped out of campus due to losing you. I know you were also told I tried to poison myself. You might have also heard I attempted murder by jumping over that cliff we often loved climbing. Well, I thought I should let you know that I am in my final year. It’s a wonder how my grades picked up well as soon as you left me. Perhaps cause I learnt I should focus on more important things. And for that cliff, I still love it’s view so I can’t help always going there. It’s not because it reminds me of you. No. I already got over you.
You know that fateful day you sent me a text message saying you no longer want to be with me, I was on my way to your place. I had just bought you the wrist watches you had always dreamt of having. I guess ours was only meant to be a dream. I do not know if you noticed you left me on your birthday. Anyway, that day, I went back home and kept them cause if you never needed me, neither did you need anything from me. How my new found love now wears them so often! He says they reminds him always of me. This would not have been the case with you cause you never appreciated my kind gestures. That is not important now cause I got over you.
Our tight hugs, light kisses under the tree by the roadside, holding hands down the street, our late night chats; I never thought they would ever mean nothing to me as right now. Not that they always meant nothing initially. No. I just realized they were not out of a sincere pure love. I realized how arrogant, cold and selfish you were. Just so you know, nothing means the world to me now like my new found Love’s soft hugs, light smiles and short but touching prayers. I guess I just got over you.
Thanks to you I redefined love. At least I now know how much of a difference it is from infatuation. That love is not having my picture as your Whatsap icon. Love is not when you post love songs on my Facebook wall. Love is not walking me home when you’re dying to quickly rush home. Love is not taking me to dates that will leave you indebted in debts. Love is not a side dish.
In stead, love is the essential amino acid that keeps you healthy. Love is simply an unconditional commitment to an imperfect person. To love someone is not just a strong feeling inside. It is Decision, a Judgement and above all, a Promise. If I know what love is, it is because of you. I learnt this when I got over you.
