You knew it would be him the minute you laid eyes on him. That moment sitting somewhere obscure on a window sill, the moonlight reflecting off your chocolate skin. That moment he picked you up for the very first date, and all you could feel were the butterflies in your stomach. The moment you had to say goodbye to him, praying that this was not it. And it wasn't. It never will be. Every one of those moments you saw him walking towards you, a smile lighting up his face at your very sight, pushing up his cheeks, the smile reaching his eyes and straight to your soul. That time you held him close while he cried like a newborn baby, and all you wanted was to inhale all his sadness and inject him with all your joy. You knew it would be him, and only him, who could make you feel like the only girl in the world, and yet like you're a speck of dust not to be bothered with -- only to be brushed away. When he wouldn't give you a second glance when you dressed up for him, and yet would create a protective circle around you when anyone else so much as laid eyes on you. When the warmth of his embrace was enough for you to die peacefully, and yet his cold, clammy touch left shivers running down your spine. You knew it would be forever him even the very last time you saw him, in a blur of black and white coats, the torrential rain mourning this death with you, time standing still. You knew it would be him, forever and for always, even when the illusion shattered into a thousand pieces. You knew this was it, and yet, you knew it would be him, forever and for always. .
