The college corridor was filled with kids chirping with excitement in their heart. They were vibing the energy that makes me anxious. There was something in the air that made me uncomfortable about myself.
My eyes went on you. You standing in the corner of hallway laughing at the stupid joke cracked by one of your crazy friend. My eyeballs were stuck on you like they never had a treat to have a sight of something as enchanting as your face.
You looked at me from top to bottom and smirked, then looked back. I thought probably you smirked at what a disaster I looked. I wished under my breath that we should never cross each other’s path again.
But destiny had something else planned for both of us. You were in the same class as I was. Sitting on the seat next to mine. This time you looked at me and gave a genuine smile. I swear I could feel butterflies in my stomach.
Days passed and I was diving into those ocean eyes of yours. No matter how hard I tried I always failed to function normally infront of you.
One night we both happen to sit together and the song Thinking out loud was playing in the background. You asked me to dance with you. It was so unexpected that I shivered a bit. In a very meekly voice I said, “no.” You held my hands and asked me to follow you step by step. The way your arms calmed my anxiety. I lived my forever in that moment.
People fall in love in a mysterious way, may be it’s a part of the plan. Baby now take me into your loving arms, kiss me under the light of the thousand stars. May be, we found love right where we are.
My favourite lines from the song. Overnight, you became that song for me. All I can say now that may be I found you right where I lost myself.
