a tale of love with uncertain ending, whose tides will take me where they see fit.

i am laughing

by piothelost

i laughed

when he told me his convoluted love story

i laughed

when he told me of the girl he fell for when he stated his love for her when they knew each other for fleeting moments

i laughed

as i considered the situation "how ridiculous, that an ardor so tearing could exist" "could develop over such a short period of time"

i laughed

as i parted with him at his warning of the situation at the prospect of it ever happening to me

and yet

i laughed

at the vanilla-bean smile offered by the desk beside mine at his unpalatable jokes, despite having the sweet taste of his laughter resonating in my ears

i laughed

as he teased me, nicknaming me and giving me a different persona by the day as the desk beside mine consolidated with my own, until we were homogenous

i laughed

at myself, for attempting to bring us closer together at my constant need for physical contact at the denouement that came after the apex of our fingers touching

then our palms then our hands interlocked

i was no longer laughing

when after the fleeting moments that could have been the duration of a drone ant's life i felt something. tugging in me. pulling.

i was no longer laughing

at the desperation evident in us both, as we realised the days came to an end at my drowning heart, the tears causing heartache internalized, so as to not cause further pain

i laughed

at myself for not heeding his warnings for falling too fast in a bottomless well at the potential for love in me, and how most of it was dedicated to him, the desk beside mine
