The Fallen Leaf

June 19, 2010
It’s been a week since I saw him last. It seems like yesterday. I remember how he looked. He wore that blue shirt I absolutely love. His hair was all messy, he had not slept all night. I could tell by the way he looked at me that something was terribly wrong. His brown eyes were filled with concern. My heart couldn’t bear that look. Sure, I had seen that look before but it was never this serious. I kept trying to ask him, “What’s wrong baby?” He wouldn’t tell me. He just kept looking at me, holding me in his hands.

I lie down here, falling on and off sleep. Without him, life is meaningless. I am a fallen leaf, an empty vase. I feel as if my heart would collapse, as if this darkness will engulf me.

It all started when we decided to take the next big step in our relationship. These things are never easy. But I knew I could trust him. I loved him. And I knew, he loved me. Nothing could go wrong. But it did. I don’t blame him. I know in my heart, he must have tried his best to save me. It’s just that sometimes life is not fair.

I worry for him. He must be lost without me. There has not been a single day in the past 2 years that he did not meet me, did not hold me in his arms.

I miss him. I don’t care what happened, anymore. I am ready to forget it all. If only he would come back.  If only I could hear his voice once more, feel his touch around me. If only things would go back to being the way they were.

I opened my eyes, and there he was! Oh! He looked so amazing. His face glowed and his eyes glittered. How dearly I love him! How his touch gives meaning to my very essence. “I missed you so much! I knew you would come back for me.” I said.

He looked at me like he had never seen me before, like I was the most beautiful thing in the world. He stared at me lovingly, held me in his hands, and told me how much he missed me. “Thank god! Finally! I managed to boot you up! I am so sorry! I will never try to install windows on you ever again!“, He said.

I love you baby, no matter what..” I told him.

He picked me up in his arms and headed towards home.
