Dear Ex,

Can we share a moment? A new one. With nothing attached. Forgetting everything we were and why things didn’t work, releasing all judgement and what ifs. Can we share a moment, just one where I can see you now, today, as a human being minus expectations, ideas of love, and the crumbled check lists we had peeking from our back pockets. Can we share the fears before we kissed because those felt real. Can we just be. Without labels or dissecting dynamics. For one moment, can I experience you without us?

Not to spark or reignite but to be reminded that we were nothing more than two people who ran toward something they felt but fell. With scrapped knees and a half smile, can we look at each other and laugh. Knowing we were fools but also stood on courage. We believed in something. And even if it was short lived, that belief is what love is about. Not the promise.

Can we share a brand new experience based on what is. Because the world doesn’t believe we should. Because we’re supposed to close our hearts and look straight ahead, waiting for someone new as if love runs out. Because I miss you before we were we.

You can’t control how someone feels about you but you can control how you exercise your heart toward them.
