Hoping against Hope

And when it all comes down to it, we just want them to meet our eyes halfway.

Some people are lucky enough that the person they love decides to love them back while others make mistakes of letting the one go.
Yet, some people are just fated to be bullied by fate – they keep falling for the wrong people; people who will never look their way.
Have you ever had that one moment? That one moment when you look at the person and you instantly feel how much you want them in your life. And as your heart echoes throughout the entirety of your being, the little voice in your head snaps you back to reality and says, “No, it’s not gonna happen.”
But despite it all, more and more people choose to hope against hope because hope is all we have left. Hope is all we have left when the even the tiniest particle in our body just wants them.
We hope against hope because at the end of the day, it all boils down to one thing – we all just want to be loved.
You hold on to the one percent chance you have and it makes you smile because that one percent is 99 counts away from what you have dreamed of all your life.
Suddenly, you smile because 99 counts is not too far – at least you refuse to believe how far it really is.
And in a moment you say:
In those dark brown eyes, in that laugh that brightens up the room, everyday, there’s your world.
There it is.

Proof that a degree in Communication doesn't make anyone less awkward; music taste ranges from the very first Britney Spears album to Arcade Fire and Haim but does not include Justin Bieber and One Direction; favorite poet is me because everyone is a poet when they're sad enough.

One thought on “Hoping against Hope”

  1. What if that 1% chance was take away from you by death?

    I wish to write about that, but I don’t know why I can’t. If you can, I hope you do. 🙂
