Welcome to this journey, of my story. It doesn’t have a title yet, but I am thinking of calling it You or His Eyes, but for now I’ll just call it You. Right now, it’s a few jumbled quotes without order, but it’ll get there. It’s written in free verse, and I can’t give you any other description but love story because that’s just what it is. And so:
“There is something magical first words are written upon a page. They lead to an unstoppable force that can change the world and the very minds and hearts of the people that make it up.”
I started thinking about love when I was thirteen.
You see, I was smart for my age,
and was an older mind trapped in a younger body.
Too early, anyone would say.
Too early, I would agree.
And perhaps I had read too many books
or maybe I was,
as they say,
“In love with the idea of love.”
And I would have crushes
that crushed my heart
most of the time.
But I knew, and I thought,
that there had to be someone out there for me,
somewhere in the 9 billion people,
and I’d fall in love so strongly it’d last a lifetime.
And I thought that
because otherwise I’d give up
I’d say there was no point to life.
I wanted to need someone
not in a bad way
but they’d be there when you need
somebody warm at your back,
But, after five years
I was 18,
just as ready to fall in love
as I was five years ago,
but more unprepared
than I’d ever imagined.
I was 18,
when I fell in love with you.
And I didn’t think it’d be
that fluttery crush feeling
nothing compared to this.
This is the story of our love.
The story of a world,
where while everything around us was crazy
and everyone around us vying
to be pretty or popular or perfect,
you were my rock,
you were my warm embrace,
you were the one I could call at 3 am
and I could always count on you to be there for me
you were my heart.
This is the story of two souls
becoming so together,
that they could never be torn apart
that no one could ever take them away from each other.
This is the story of true soulmates…
