The Fear

Looking up to the star-lit sky, she recalls that unforgettable night. The night when she longed to hear the three words..”I am here”. Though he said those words with hesitance; her innocent heart accepted that little lie.

He wanted to show her how manly he was. So he listed promises as much as he could say, lifting that poor foolish girl’s hopes to more than they could stand. 

She was full of life and she deserved to be loved and to love. But the only fault she was accused of was that she wanted to share the happiness of life with the one she thought will love her till the end.

The “I am here” were just words to shut her emotions. The rest of her days were empty having him beside her.

He left her weeping till her love tried to escape her throat. Her soul was trapped between the cages of her heart and her memories lost to fade away.

As a star falls in the sky, she lets out a teardrop from her eye; It may be a glimpse of that bitter memory, a rage towards her blind belief or the fear of promises..

But still..

She lights up the candles with hope; wishing for another blessed year celebrating her 9th anniversary.

She smiles at her past. How she was; what she’s gone through and how all of a sudden she met him. The one she never dreamt of meeting.

He simply lend her his hand for her to hold forever. But she was reluctant.

She was not sure of herself because she didn’t trust her own being until he showed her to…herself!

He taught her how to become the best she can be. He enjoyed her company whenever she tries to spare time with him.

He enlightened her with his presence. And whenever it’s time to leave, he fills her with hope, joy and promise of staying with her…for eternity.

Through all these years, she may have exchanged and shared her deep feelings but still she looks up with doubt.

The doubt in herself if she can really keep that bond; if she is worthy of him since he, himself is perfect. The doubt that she may betray him like his close friend did.
When she feels that she’s going to give up, she finds that there’s nowhere to go. Everything seems blank without him, everything seems meaningless.

“Trust me”; he said.
She’s been 9 years with him. Still she doesn’t know how to love him.

But still what’s keeping her hopes high is him; his promise, his words, his love.

The Big Day

She walked down the aisle in a long white dress…

Holding her bouquet in her hands, she remembered how many times she played the petal game to know the answer to this day.

It’s like a dream..a dream come true…a dream was thought impossible, but as her lover reminds her everytime, that it’s possible by his side!

She walked past the welcoming people rising from the church benches. Feeling proud of the clapping hands…proud of her decision and is excited to meet the one waiting for her on the other side.

She smiled at the people who where holding their tears back. Their eyes spoke of their shock, confusion and joy.

The day they received the invitation for this event was sudden and unplanned. Instead of thinking of her own life, many questioned her parents’ and family’s reactions.

But she made it! Here she is, walking firmly, flipping her long hair for the last time…

As she nears the altar, a teardrop slides down her cheek.
She remembered herself being here in a white dress 17 years ago..She recieved Him that moment but never gave herself back.
Today she decided to fully commit to the vow..

and she said YES!

Is it when your eyebrows move up excitingly or your eyes widen up to see the beloved clearly?

Is it when you tend to spend time with someone you wish to stay next to, forever?

Is it when you desire to caress the face gently to let the one know that you care?

Is it when you smell the scent in the air even after the owner has left for hours?

Is it when you can distinguish that unique voice among all the sounds your ear, drums to?

Is it when your heart pounds finding  the intense love?

Love is the eternal voice that calls you everytime you experience “your definition” of love.
It becomes louder and louder shouting to convince you of the pure love that is ready to pour into you..
It’s divine, honest, beautiful, exciting.
That is Love.

Love is thinking about that Person all the time and trying to connect with the purest form instead of fantasizing..
Love is the strong trust you have without any proof.
Love is connecting through the pure soul.

Love is a word. That Word itself took the form of Love.

The Heart full of Garden

Hi Mr. Car Freak,

If your car may take you places where you dream to visit..then choose my heart as your destination!

There are no gates, no high fences, no barking dogs, no thorns..

What you will find is a small door. Just tap on it gently and it will open to welcome you inside.

After that long weary ride, you’ll sure need a rest. But before you let out a sighing breath, it will be captured by the view of the inside of my heart.

A beautiful garden filled with sweet fragrance and different kinds of flowers except for roses..

There in the middle of the garden, an empty space with fertile soil is waiting for the rose seed you’re carrying in your hands.

All it needs is to be watered and nourished and taken care of so that it grows an exquisite bed of roses..

P.S. There is one sign on the door of the heart that says:”this place is not for rent; you’re welcome only if you are ready to stay”.
