Answers on a postcard

When you meet the one, the person who can hurt you without touching you, or make your heart skip a beat with a single word. When you only feel whole when that person walks in, and the rest of the time you're unable to feel happy, or anything. When making love fills your heart with 'I love you's until you just have to say it out loud for fear you might suffocate under the weight of them. When the same song plays over and over in your head because the words describe exactly how you're feeling. When they hold you in their arms and you know you're home. When you whisper 'I love you' in the darkness and your heart is a waterfall as they say 'I love you too'. When you see the world in new colours and hear music in the wind just because they're holding your hand. When you catch your breath at the thought of them and weep to the universe in gratitude. When saying their name sets your tongue tingling. When you make a fool of yourself over them but know that it's worth it for how they make you feel. When the person with eyes like a forest after the rain looks into yours and says 'I can't do this anymore'. When you were already at such risk from them and they choose the moment you are most vulnerable to drop your heart into the void. When you still can't bring yourself to hate them, but you don't trust the universe to make them hurt as they've hurt you. What do you do?
