She radiated light from across the room.
I had to get to know her.
She parted the crowd as if she was a goddess.
I had to meet her.
She shines through the darkness and lights the path towards freedom.
I needed her.
I reached out for her hand, as she pulled me in close.
I closed my eyes and leaned in.
I felt her warm kiss. It was like a rainbow after a storm. A sign of hope.
A sign of hope for me because I need someone, something to show me the upside.
