She had only wished, prayed and waited for one thing in her life – love.
She had fought with it all her life. And now that she finally got it, ironically, it had a bittersweet taste…
After the days of wooing and getting to know each other’s mind, there was nothing left to say. Yes, they knew each other’s thoughts and opinions…but, in her mind, they still needed to know each other’s hearts.
Their love was undeniable in her eyes and her devotion was set on him, and him alone! But there was this space, this void…so deep she couldn’t help but regularly fall in it. And everyday it got harder to come back up.
That moment, she understood that, although her love for him was true and unconditional, she felt the need to touch it. Words written on blank paper seized to be enough anymore!
She wanted to see his eyes, to feel his hands, to listen to his heart, to fall asleep in his arms, to memorize the pattern of his breaths and the movement of his lips when he spoke.
And for the first time in her life, distance was her only enemy.
