From Our Readers: We're Just Pieces of Two Different Puzzles
They say opposites attract. I believe in that, because we are completely different entities and our only similarity is that we breathe the same air. But despite our differences, we enjoy each other's company. We are able to talk all day without arguing and just be cool about each other's differences.
But you've got things to deal with and I've got mine. I know at some point in time, you're going to lose your temper and patience, so will I. Time will come that you would want to do things that I don't want, our opinions are going to clash and our differences that we once appreciated and enjoyed are going to be the same differences that would break and tear us apart.
Yes, I'm jumping into conclusions, but that is what I'm good at, you'd always say. It's just that I want you to see my point. Being with you is going to be so complicated and I don't want to complicate my life even more. I'm too scared to lose myself once more, because I know that I'm already a lost soul still waiting to be found. I'm too afraid to swim against the current and I don't want to let anyone break down my walls just yet. You may be worthy of all the pain and heartache, but I don't think I'm ready to take risks.
We are just pieces of two different puzzles, impossible to fit into and with each other. And because of our differences, I'm more scared of us. So right now, I would just prefer me and you because I know in the perfect time, this gap that separates us will be the same gap that will bind our hearts and allow us to be a possibility.
