for now ...

There's forever. There is eternity. There is after life. There is beyond this life.

Then, there is for now.

It's crazy I know. It's all false hope and illusions whenever we promise love to one another, love that will last forever, for eternity, after life, and beyond this life. For now is more realistic, its more tangible. For now should be good enough. It should be.

It's not. For me, it will never be good enough.

I am a hopeless romantic. Even after all the heartbreaks that I have been through, I still believe that a love that can surpass anything exists. I believe that as long as both parties are willing to work on things, as long as both parties want that forever, it will happen.

It takes two to tango and one to end the dance. A relationship crumples when one doesn't believe that it will work, when one isn't sure that it will work out. A relationship, for it to work, the two people involve needs to believe that it will work, that they can talk anything out and compromise to make things work.

If this wasn't true, then no one would reach 25, 50, or even 75 years of being married to the same person. If this wasn't true, the great love stories will not be written for there would be no inspiration to get it from.

I hope I find my eternity. I just can't settle for "for now."
