Broken Fences – Simplicity
Simplicity was what I had dreamed and sought after, but when achieved, that bittersweet taste doesn’t seem that beautiful.
We never know where we may be tomorrow, in a week, in a month, in a year. We never know.
Haven’t you ever wished you could just have anything you want? Whoever you want in this world, just to be by your side, to be yours?
I once had someone who I never thought I would meet, right by my side. He was intelligent, humorous, serious at the right times, sarcastic when it was just perfect. Outwardly he would scowl or smirk whenever he wanted. But when he smiled. It truly was a gem. His smile lit up whoever was around. It was contagious.
For that 1 year he was mine.
To be around him, I felt blessed. Even though he wasn’t exclusively mine, I gave thanks for our fateful encounter. I believe that it was raw fate that spun our paths together.
Is it not dreadful though? To have tasted and felt perfection; you would never imagine it to end because at that moment it didn’t seem to have a finish line.
Distances really do separate two people. Goals do pull the limits of two, far, far away. Spun around this globe that we live on a million times and more.
When will I see you again? In front of me. Smiling that lopsided grin at me. Laughing at my horribly stitched up jokes and stories.
Won’t you come back?
