Nothing Lasts Forever

There comes a point when the expiration date of an SL relationship hits, and boy was ours due a while back. It didn't seem like things would change and it was only a matter of time before we were back at square one again. As much as you want for things to get better, for them to work out sometimes they don't. I couldn't justify going ahead with another wedding only to be stuck in the same place, and not getting the time in that we used to. Waiting for the blue pop up to appear on my screen or an email to reach my in box.

A partnership should be more than just waiting. It's a commitment made to another person that you will be there, that you will spend time with them and take an interest in shared things. It cannot sustain on memories alone. Like a fire, a partnership can not survive without fuel from both parties. It takes understanding, passion and the occasional off the wall moment. Without the added sparks that keep it going the flame dies out and what's left? a smoky pile of ashes.

While it hurts now to have this end It will pass and perhaps in time prospects of new love will arise.

If you don't know
Then you can't care
And you show up
But you're not there
But I'm waiting
And you want to
Still afraid that I will desert you

With every worthless word we get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever, but be honest babe
It hurts but it may be the only way
Maroon 5- Nothing Lasts Forever
