I met him
On a random day of September
When the heavy clouds were crying and screaming forcefully,
Matching the pieces of my conflicted heart.
They were like trying to express
To make their presence known so desperately,
To be heard in the stone cold silence
Enveloping the world at the moment
But it was like nobody paid attention.
Nobody even cared.
I was walking on the sidewalk alone
Passing through crowds and crowds of too busy people
Hurrying to their comforting yet lonely homes
How could I feel so broken inside,
How could I forget my own identity
Being in front of such a reckless masterpiece
Developing through my own blazing eyes.
I was mesmerized by the unspoken power of the world’s creation
Yet the life in me was slowly slipping away.
I was drown in my own selfish thoughts,
Resigned of my troubled past
And yet scared of the future,
I didn’t want to admit then,
To let myself wholly feel
the heaviness my heart carried
for so long.
I was defeated by my own self
And thought I could never do anything to change it.
I didn’t believe in second chances at all
Because I wasn’t in some overly cheesy movie
It was such a foreign concept to me.
Perhaps that is why I felt
A pair of curious and piercing eyes staring
Not at me
But through my very own soul.
It was like he had the ability to fix back the pieces
Into the place they belonged
Like a lost game of puzzle
Only that the puzzle was the way to my heart.
He sparkled something in me,
He ignited a long forgotten fire into my soul
Which I didn’t know it even existed anymore
In just a couple of mere seconds.
His intimidating yet captivating aura
Instead of pulling me away from the unknown,
It only pulled me closer and deeper to each other.
It was something I never experienced before
My head was spinning
My heart was bursting out of my chest
My mind was screaming at me to just run as far as I can,
That I couldn’t stand another one
In my too long series of dissapointments.
The connection and desire were so much stronger though
Putting my heart in charge of my actions and feelings
For once,I felt peaceful with myself.
We were smiling softly at each other and
The world seemed like a happy place again
Still the same burning sensation remained
And deep inside of me,
I wasn’t able to comprehend that
In a sea full of people,
He was the only one brave enough to see me
The real me.
And suddenly,I didn’t feel alone anymore.
