An Unsent Letter Meant For Every Human Heart Who Thinks They Are Incapable Of Love

To the heart of the human who said and actually believes that they are emotionally unavailable,

I would like you to know that you are as much capable of feeling love and giving it away just as much as any other heart there is.

Your mind says “I’m okay by myself, I don’t need anyone else, and I’m happy as I am”, but your heart says “it’s not true, none of it is true!” And you’re not even listening to your own needs.

Love came to you for more times than you’ve ever been aware of anything, but your eyes were closed and your ears were too busy listening to your genitals’ every decree.

I wish I could make you understand that you won’t find love in carnal pleasures spent with nameless bodies.

You deserve so much better, and I think you know it too.

Lastly, I won’t ever use you in the way you want me to use you—I can’t, and I definitely won’t, so don’t ever ask it of me again.
