New post from kayyy.a.t
The light was dim and the television was on,
My sister adamantly watching another rom-com.
The clock stroke twelve which conveyed,
The commencement of the day I first saw him years ago, actively being replayed.
Sitting there trying to subtle my expressions,
I read his message through the notifications.
Alongside, my best friend congratulated me entirely proud,
And I just sat there, feeling emotionally drowned.
Reminiscing all the moments and intense hurdles we had experienced together already,
There was a wave of sentiments entrenched throughout my body,
Despite the societal differences, we held onto the hope of being united and accepted one day happily,
And in that instance, I apprehended the strength of loving someone truly.
Overwhelmed, I open his message in haste,
Reading his sweet deliverance of feelings with taste,
Eyes well up, as I feel this irrepressible realisation in my pit,
Unable to express much virtually, I just reply with complete honesty that, “you are it”.
