My heart exploded the moment I saw her.
Dark skinned, deep as the ocean could get.
Moments after my eyes laid on her, the world got quiet and I got smaller, waiting for the moment I could become hers.
Why oh why should I restrain myself from loving such a wonderful being?
Why should I neglect my thoughts and begin a new life afar from hers?
Why should I stare from the distance and allow her to become a ghost in my life?
Cold and with no real home to be at.
For a moment I understood my reason to be in this world, at this moment. At that moment I understood I needed to be by her side.
So, I walked towards her and said hi.
And this interaction became a conversation that lasted what I thought was years.
And I felt a type of peace I had never felt before.
Her number entered my phone like butter dancing on top of a loaf of bread,
And I understood, finally, that everything was going to be okay.
