I didn't ask for this.

I didn't ask to show me a glimpse of happiness. 

I didn't ask to show me how love could feel. 

But now, 14 days into the new year I got to experience it. 


I got to experience the butterflies.

I got to experience a genuine smile. 

I got to experience what fate looked like. 

What destiny felt like. 


I was happy. 

I was giddy. 

I was hopeful. 


A feeling I've never felt authetnically. 

I feeling that I felt like I deserved. 

A feeling that lasted only 4 hours. 


I was hopeful, that I will experience this again. 

That I will see you again. 

Even if it was only for one more night. 

I felt that I at least deserved that much. 


But I guess not. 

At least not for now. 


Why did we even meet? 

Our paths did not need to cross. 

But it did and it's over. 

Well played.

I'll take the random moments of drowning in love just so I can remember the awesome feeling of loving and being loved, no matter how brief and how much heartache is involved.

Love this. We often don't understand encounters until hindsight sheds some light. But, for a fleeting moment, hope reigned supreme and life had a surreal meaning. Perhaps, that's reason enough. Thanks for sharing! ❤
