It is our first anniversary today. As we walked hand in hand into the restro-bar to celebrate our one year of togetherness, my mind started replaying the day we first met.
It was a Friday and as I waited for my turn to read the lines I had written for the Friday Poetry Night, my eyes fell on the beauty standing in front of me.
As she took the mike, her voice instantly captivated my attention. She started reading her poem on Unconditional Love. I couldn’t understand what was more mesmerizing- her face, her lines or her voice.
As I looked around, I found the entire hall looked as if they were in a trance. As she finished her lines and walked off the stage with the thundering applause from the enthralled crowd, I forgot it was my turn on the stage and ran after her.
She was soon surrounded by her admirers and I was dragged back on stage by a mate. When I hurriedly finished reading my poem and tried hunting her down, I thought that I had almost lost her.
Just then, there was a gentle tap on my shoulder and when I turned to see, there she was, standing so gracefully. She smiled at me and congratulated me. She beat me by asking me out first. She told me later that she had her eyes only for me on that day and was truly enamoured by me. Ahem…
Cut to present, as we walked inside the place where we first met, it was the day of Friday Poetry Night once again. Could you believe the coincidence? As we were seated, I ordered for a champagne to celebrate the occasion.
Looking at her, my heart swelled with love that was so truly intangible and my trouser pocket weighed me down with a ring that I was planning to propose her with, later tonight.
