The Crazy Way You Loved Me

By Ikenga Chronicles January 4, 2017

We had an extraordinary love. Together we were a thrilling, intense, unforgettable storm.

For reasons only known to demons and gods, when my naked skin touched yours your heart violently intervened and boldly commanded my heart to dance.

I never put up a fight. I just lay there night after night wondering how a human who seemed so delicate, tender and fragile on the surface could have the inner strength and determination to mercilessly override my heartbeat and force a fusion that eternally changed its pulsating rhythm.

The collision of our two hearts shattered and spun me out of all control. It stirred me to experience a wild but melancholy madness for you as I found pieces of us glistening and crackling like lightning in everything, everywhere. I underestimated how far I could fall and I foolishly lost myself in you and your alluring perilous love.

You see, in the aftermath of what we shared, I’ve come to understand something—love is not always sweet, kind and gentle.

It is also unintentionally cruel and fearsome and it naively doesn’t realize the devastating consequences of its actions. When the heart wants something so badly it will stop at nothing to escape the ribcage and reach for its desire, it is unstoppable. It is naive to believe that love will patiently wait or that it will tentatively step slowly on roses when it finds a rare and intoxicatingly strong connection. Love will take a million thorns in its side and still not falter despite the tales of caution and grace we are repeatedly told.

So, you may think I am side-stepping my responsibilities here and that I am asking for you to take the blame for the aches I now carry with me. Yes. It is true. My heart-fueled anarchy must be because of you…
