Why is the dream of a fairy tale-like love only limited to the minds of children?
Because when we are children our minds are always open to new things, we know how to have fun, but somehow along the path of growing and life we lose that ability. Whatever your reason for that is, I’m sure most of you lose that amazing ability because it’s too much work and there’s not a lot of space for that in society. But for one moment try to imagine being able to keep that ability alive throughout your life? Do you not think that it holds the secret to a life truly worth living?
I lived the norm, fell in place to what this world accepts as right, for the one day I came face to face with this ability and it was not just a moment to never forget but it was a start to a journey I never thought I’d be able to travel.
For what fun it was seeing your face and knowing absolutely nothing about you yet knowing that this is the person I want to grow old with, build a live with and most of all have fun with. That smile that appeared was so perfect and warm, I felt a brush of cool mint going through my spine. A simple “hello” made so much sense as after kicking off your shoes and falling on your comfy bed knowing….. this is home.
The dangers in knowing you never crossed my mind as I never felt this much at ease with anyone except my imaginary friend who was perfect to my every desire and what twins you two seemed to be. I didn’t love you because that is not enough of an expression to truly tell you how I felt… its indescribable. Every moment of fun I had with you, every moment of tears and even in the midst of anger and rage I felt like a princess you rescued from the castle and put on the throne of eternity…..

IT’S NOT WORTH SHARING IF IT’S NOT WORTH CELEBRATING”
