There is something that drew me to him,
That something is something that I still can’t understand.
Is it that love is really blind or was I completely blurred?
And on that sunny day,
as he smiled,I could see a whole world revolve around that magic.
I knew we were going to be together,
and that was not even a doubt,
and it started with a word “Can I be a friend?”
It went slow and slow until deep wasn’t even a vocabulary.
Only to realise that he does that with every other girl,
after hard you have gotten, he takes you to the biggest shock of your life.
Mind you, not a positive one
but one that blows you up like how chaff gets blown on a dry wind,
and you start feeling it, yes, the signs appear,
those signs you try to pretend you don’t see them,
until 5 years when you are ready to have a wedding ring on by your now real man of your life,
After agreeing to settle all your previous nightmares….
I stood at the altar waiting to blow the biggest of blows,
“I promise to love you in happiness and sorrow, in all circumstances till death does us apart”
I looked at Charles with those eyes that wish could hide what is in my mind but,
it was a truth that I couldn’t hide no more.
I didn’t want to mess others life like he did me.
“Charles, I am HIV positive”
The church turned into a mourning place and all I could remember were dreams of the Sunny Day and the once-upon-a-time-boyfriend-that-screwed-me-into-pieces..
