Poet Lady Katz (new forum post): One Day.

One Day.

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”.
