Do you remember this day? Today marks a year that my eyes first laid eye on you.
When I saw you walk across that room for the first time and instantly I knew you were going to be a problem to my heart.
As we sat awkwardly next to each other on a ride, I secretly watched you from the corner of my eye and I felt like my heart was about to burst out from my chest.
I couldn’t help but to think how handsome you looked in just a simple black t-shirt and sweats. As you griped the pillow you were carrying, I noticed how you buried your face and gently fell asleep.
I was afraid. I knew what was coming. I tried to stop myself before any illusions came to my head but… That all changed in our second week together.
Trapped in an amazing destination, we felt the sensation for something new. Swinging in a hamic with the beautiful view of the moon and the stars, we experience the comfort and warmth of eachother’s company late at night as we opened up to eachother about our past and hopes for the future. With no distraction from technology, time was unconscious to our evening.
I remember one night in which you decided to lay next to me on the smallest hamic in the room that ended in us into spooning. You reached out for my hand for the first time and give me a strong grip as if you were falling off a cliff and depended on my strength. I laid my head on your shoulder and your first words were, “This is the first night I actually feel confortable.” I felt a rush flow through my vines up to my heart and felt a smile burst on my face. I looked up to see your face and I silently whispered back, “Don’t fall asleep.”
The next few days were amazing as we moved to one of the best locations; the beach. We became inseparable. As we ran careless into the raging waters, I felt your strong arms grip me around the waist, pulling me slowly close to your body. You brought your face right next to mine and whispered the three words that can make a girl fall to your feet. I stood still, not sure how to respond, but you took charge into the situation and kissed me a thousand times on the cheek. I felt the piles of smiles gathering on my face and I couldn’t help but feel like the happiest girl alive. We both didnt say much… But we felt exactly what the other was feeling.
Late one night at the beach, we decided to stay behind to sit on a log with an amazing view of the body of water in front of us. We crossed arms and playfully played with eachothers fingers. I laid my head on your shoulder to feel the gentle kisses on my cheek that only your lips could deliver. Slowly but surely, you manage to land the most powerful kiss on my lips. It was the first time I felt your lips against mine. You looked up into my eyes and joking laughed, “That was on your cheek right?” I only smiled and embraced the moment we had just shared.
We hiked to our next location that only seemed like true paradise. A small resort right next to beach with clear blue waters that shined under the bright yellow sun. We dived into the clear blue waters and swam through it like two careless teens. As I watched you swim underwater, I noticed you swimming towards me only to drag me underwater with you to give me a kiss. A underwater kiss. I felt how our bodies magically fit perfectly together and I held on tight to the moment. I loved the sensation I was feeling. The idea that my body was closer than ever towards yours. From there on, there was no confusion on what we were feeling towards eachother.
That night as I laid down to sleep, I kept replying the moment in which I first felt your lips. I smiled and laughed at how much time we were been spending and clearly noticing how slowly you were leaving your mark on my heart. Thats when I came to the realization that this was only temporarily until we both had to head back home.
Distince. That was the only thing running through my head. There was no way we were going to maintain what we had at this surreal place… back at home. We both escaped our realities to run away to place that we can only dreamed of. You had your life back at home and so did I.
When time was up, we found ourselves in the same spot as the first time we met. Awkwardly sitting right next to each other on a ride back home. You laid your head on my lap this time and I rubbed your head gently until you fell asleep. I stared at how peacefully you looked sleeping. I loved having you like this. Right next to me.
When we approached our destination, we knew it was time to head home… And sadly, forget what we just had experienced.
I remember before we left through the doors, you promised me that you wouldn’t forget about me and remain in touch. You left without even saying goodbye and I stood there as I watched you fade through the crowd.
It’s been a year now since that has happened and I cant quite figure out your secret. Your secret on how lie and forget about someone so fast.
“The best part of a relationship is getting to call the person, or lay down next to them, and tell them all the crazy things that happened to you all day long. In the end that’s what it’s about. It’s not about sex, it’s not about the money they give you, it’s not about how good looking they are, it’s about them listening to you talk for hours and hours and hours, about stupid shit that doesn’t matter.”—Tegan Quin (via blackbruise)
“A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other…Maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.”—Dave Matthews Band (via kushandwizdom)
