The Woman …

Have you ever met someone that changed how you view the world, how you live, how you feel and how you think?

I used to see the world in black and white, i lived in a world covered in darkness and demons. There was but a star in the sky that gave me hope, it kept me from destroying myself. That star was, in fact, but a dream. It was not a reality, it was blind hope. I would hope for the sake of hoping, knowing that if you live without hope then you are already dead.

I didnt know myself, i just knew i had to keep on going, keep moving and follow my heart. I knew logic was the darkest path of all. I knew it would kill whatever was left of that burning light inside me. The part of me that was pure, the part that defined me as me.

Lost, confused and following a path laid before me. All i knew in my heart was that i had to keep following this path, i could not see in front of me and i dared not to look behind me.

I found myself distancing more and more, distancing from this world and becoming increasingly engrossed in my own. I was essentially creating my own reality.

Then …

Something changed one day, someone changed me.

I now felt purpose, the darkness with which surrounded me began to cower to the light. No demon would touch her for she was brighter than any star in the sky. But she was like me, we were lost and would one day lose ourselves to the darkness within us.

We rescued each other. I ask ….. was it fate?

We met at such a time in our lives that had it been a little sooner or a little later we likely would not have been. We found each other  under such unconventional circumstances and at exactly the right time in our lives, we had both come to crossroads with which there may have been no turning back. We found ourselves falling for each other when we were committed to another.

But in doing so, we found each other.
