I thought it was fate.

We were always at the same places, but never bumped into each other. We had the same friends, but never crossed paths. We did the same things, but just always missed each other.
I used to think that we were being pulled together. I remember the excitement of learning about you, and all those times we just missed each other. I thought it was a sign from the universe showing how it was always trying to force us.

But maybe it was the universe trying to force us apart.

Now, as I sit here still slightly broken hearted, I become to realise that I was glad of all those times we didn’t meet. Part of me really wishes that we never crossed paths at all. I think the world was trying to keep me away from you, because it knew you’d break me. But I never listened.

There was a reason why our paths never crossed. I know that now.
