Destined for togetherness

Dear love,

Today was the first day in months that I spent time with you. Seeing you brought back old memories of early mornings, late nights, of cold winter nights spent together next to the fire place

Should we/should we not?

or of monsoons spent next to the window watching the raindrops fall against the window like pearls on a woman’s neck. You were there for me through thick and thin, through happiness and times of forlorn.

Your contagious energy, your devious humor and taking life as it comes attitude which had beguiled me hook line and sinker the first time had begun to creep through the dark trenches of my soul once more

I longed to hold you, to devour and to let your silky smooth skin consume me in ways only you could let it happen.

And yet the way in which you left 5 months back brought back the negative feelings and the sour spots were felt again.

While you were gone, I cried my way to bed, woke up feeling empty and wobbled through life without the soul I had relied on for years together. I groped for you at the supermarket, the street sidewalks and the restaurants. I was hoping to just catch a glimpse of you yet you were nowhere to be seen. You had disappeared from our lives without the slightest notice and left so many hearts in pain.

Within a month of you disappearing, I tried spending time with others, tried to lose myself in their smell, in their charm hoping they would make me forget you. Yet no one could come near you. You were someone who had enticed me in every possible way and had left a void so deep it was impossible for any other soul to even remotely fill the void.

But as I spent time with you and as the hours rolled by I realized you seem old, boring and a shadow of your old self.

And yet the sense of familiarity kept drawing me back to you. There was something in the way we touched each other, something about the way you still felt and smelled that drew me closer to you. It made me forget the time away from you and made me feel closer to you than ever before.

Thus we continue on a dream of happily ever after.
