Realisation.

It’ll happen suddenly…
When you’re busy lugging your bags in the airport, running to board your flight on time.
Realisation dawns on you at random places and the weirdest of times.
As you settle down in a chair, you’ll be distracted by the beep of a message on your phone and it’ll change the course of your thoughts.
You’ll realise that it’s not the promises of him loving you through terrible times that matter…
Rather, him holding your head as you throw up all that you just drank.
Those are the things that will remain etched in your memory.
You’ll realise it’s love when he’ll wait for you, with you, while you tearfully pay the bill at the hospital that your dog died.
You’ll realise it’s love when he cracks silly jokes, when you’re weeping, so that you smile.
You’ll realise it, when he gives you his handkerchief, even if it is to wipe your nose, especially when it is to wipe your nose.
He won’t know you’ve realised it’s love, he won’t know that he will realise it too…
But you would have.
You always have.
You always will.
