He is sitting there staring out of the window. It is raining. And it is the kind of rain that makes you go silent. The rain which carries the sound of it's own even in it's stillness. I love that kind of rain. Where you feel cold. And that feeling makes you warm. The whole weather defines paradox in an absolutely unique way. And there he is staring out of the window. The restaurant was almost empty. But he hasn't noticed me yet. I sat on the other end of the room where I can get a complete view of his peaceful structure sitting there. I do not want to disturb him. Because I do not want to lose this man I am seeing right now. Lost in his thoughts. Calm and composed. There is a soft spark in his eyes which reminds me of roses. I don't know why his eyes reminds me of a bold red colour. His eyes. Eyes that are so transparent, you can see all the galaxies and universe shining inside them. Calling you to dive in and stay there forever. Is he thinking about us? But why would he? I know he is just soaking in all the beauty of the nature. 'I believe in living the moment. It is already passing. There is no sense in wasting your time worrying about what will happen tomorrow.' I remember he said that to me when I was blathering about my job interview on our date. So stupid was I, now when I think about it. I could have created a beautiful memory in those few minutes I wasted whining about my job. I searched him again. His eyes soliloquise a thousand words which can be deciphered only by those who have a key to his heart, his real heart locked deep inside the one with flesh and blood. I feel so lucky, I was the one who got a chance to unlock the door to his heart. To dive into the galaxies residing in his eyes. And today I sit here, in the same room as him but miles away. Miles away from his universe. Miles away from his thoughts. Miles away from him. He is still the same. Same depth in his eyes. The same way he admires beauty around him. But the only thing that has changed is 'us'. I closed my eyes because I cannot see him anymore. I cannot bear the thought of him sitting there all alone when he should be with me, spilling the deepest secrets of his heart. I should have been there sitting with him looking outside from his eyes, holding his hands so tightly, to never let him go. But he is all alone. I felt tears burning my cheeks and making it's way to my broken heart, reopening the stitched scars. And then.. Then I could feel him, feel his warmth, feel his scent of amity. It was as if he is too near. I opened my eyes and there he was, standing in front of me. Inside, my whole heart sprung into existence, as if it started breathing. It wanted to break the prison and hug his heart. Outside, I went numb. His eyes were looking straight at me. He was penetrating my soul with his warm gaze. Warm enough to burn me. "Sorry to interrupt in your privacy Miss, but, Do I know you?" Yes you do.
