The old you, the ‘you’ a few months or might be a few years ago.
The ‘you’ when you went out in the open, or probably just stayed home all the time. When there was no pressure on you, when there was no responsibility to shoulder, when there was nothing to worry about, when you were not broken. When you made memories with people and fell in love with them. When they were the old ‘them’.
And then some things changed, you got separated from them and it has been a very long time that you haven’t met them. It has been a very long time that you haven’t been in touch, you haven’t talked to them, you haven’t seen their face.
It has been month and years since then and you were not able to replace them with someone else. You weren’t able to find someone who can fill up their spot. And you are just in love with your old friend, your old partner.
Have you ever realised why you couldn’t find someone like them? Because you aren’t the same too. And probably you even found someone who was like them a few years back, and now too is just like them, the “new them”. And because you haven’t seen the new you don’t realize it’s the same.
Eventually, you might meet your old friend, your old lover, with a new soul and this time you might not fall in love with them. They have changed, just like you.
Sometimes, the memories of a person are better than the person. And sometimes, the person, might kill the memories for you, they might just ruin them for you. For sometimes, the person isn’t holding you back, it is the memories.
And sometimes, more than the person, you are in love with the memories.
