“Sometimes life has a cruel sense of humor, giving you the thing you always wanted at the worst time possible.”
― Lisa Kleypas
It was all wrong. The timing, the place, my state of mind, the situation; yet there you were. You were grinning as though you standing right in front of me were just meant to be. I wasn’t ready; I didn’t think I would ever be.
I was still healing from past wounds so big, that they nearly killed me. The scars they left behind would never fade as they ran too deep. I may have gotten out them alive, but just barely.
Yet there you were. You came, flipped my life & continued to stay.
You rested your head on my lap but I couldn’t get myself to run my hands through your hair even though I wanted to. When we danced your hands were on my waist & we were so close yet so far. I couldn’t bring myself to look into your eyes fearing your gaze that could look right through me.
You wanted to get to know me but I pushed you so far so fast that only made you come closer to me like a spring left when pulled really hard. You had eyes only on me but mine wandered far & wide looking everywhere but at you. You wanted to know what went on inside my head while I wanted to know what we would have for dinner.
You brought out the worst & the best in me but you remained the same.
You loved & still love as though there is an endless supply of it in your heart deeper than the deepest well. You’re beautiful & amazing, kind & patient.
You know me & still call me a mystery novel whose pages you badly wish to read. You want to know my story & want to write the rest of it using your words too.
We held hands & you never let go, even though I pulled & pushed, you told me you’d never let me go, never let me fall. You’re as bright as the sun but you consider me to be your shining star.
Why you came I would never know but you should know that you taught me so much about me that even I didn’t know existed. You brought out colors from inside me that started to paint my life with joy & love.
You’re the reason I now believe, there is no such thing as the worst possible time or bad timing because everything happens for a reason…
