The greatest love story

The greatest love story I have ever read or heard or known

is not the one about the princess in the tower saved by the prince

not the one with the star crossed lovers who kill themselves

not the one where the boy next door finally confesses his love at prom to the nerdy neighbour

this one is a little different

its the love I have with the one person who’s been there for it all

me.

The greatest love story I have ever read or heard or known

is about the continuing love I find for myself

even on the days I really hate my thighs in those black jeans

or have a new colony of pimples conquer my face

or when I can’t find a single damn thought that is not self-destructive

i love me then

and now

through all the bullshit I keep finding myself in

This is the greatest love story my friends

The one that lives on forever.

 

 

—live the life you have always secretly wanted—
