You glimpsed at me

with those glistening eyes of yours

They were so profound, so mysterious

yet endearing and attractive at the same time

My spirit was spellbinded and enchanted

That moment my long lost hope arose

but afraid was I

because you might just be the one

to tear down my wall of feigned strength


You took me out on a date

with eagerness and felicity

You ordered my favorite drink

without me informing you of that

You have the best sense of humor

and the brightest brain on earth

You never failed to make me laugh

and forget the cares of this world

You rekindled the joy has eluded me for a long time

but unnerved was I

because I might never be good for you


You held my hand

with your strong and fleshy palm

That was when I realized

how small my hand is

and how cold my soul is

Yet you clutched them tight

like they are some sort of precious gems to you

That moment I was embraced with your warmth and security

but fear crept into me silently

because loneliness and misery might just haunt me again


You caressed my imperfect cheek

and said it was the softest thing

You pressed your lips upon my forehead

and whispered the three beautiful words

that used to be someone else's lie

You promised you'd never be like him

and I wanted to believe you

but I was terrified

because you might turn out just like him.
