How I got out of that awful position? It was a hard road. Thankfulness. Incredibly hard to be, but once I had managed, everything that seemed to have a hold on me just .. poof!!! Thankfully, being thankful thawed my own heart and freed me, in a way. I feel my sparkle again. 🙂
for being struck on me from the start,
talking about me for months
for a lovely first date,
looking at the stars, the valley from above
for picking me up and driving me home,
singing along to the radio (it made me smile so hard)
for attentively listening to me,
giving me the feeling you care
for sitting on the bench with me,
drinking tea and enjoying the quiet
for kissing me despite all doubts,
holding me like you did (and checking my pulse, making me laugh harder)
Thank you for touching my heart that eve.
It was pretty perfect. I can let you go now.
This won’t make that eve less perfect
in my memory,
nor will it diminish what kind of person you are.
I can let you go now.
This won’t make me a less perfect girl,
nor will it mean you are not kind. You are.
