My eyes peeled open first.
I shook inside and worked my way out.
Slowly but surely I began to break through my cocoon.
As I broke free my wings spread and I began to flutter.
I was no longer the ugly caterpillar.
I was now the beautiful butterfly I was meant to be.
Beautiful enough to see yet, hard to catch.
There was a hole in the wall.
A light shinned through the hole in the wall. Florescent and bothersome.
As the light beamed through the hole it illuminated my darkened room. I could not sleep, tossing and turning as the night continued trying to ignore the hole in the wall. Trying to ignore the florescent light.
I got up to cover the hole but instead began to daze at the light. The light pierced my eyes for a minute and then they adjusted to its brightness.
I walked closer and closer to the hole in the wall.
Without any fear I placed my hands against the wall and leaned my body closer. I moved closer and closer to the hole in the wall and my eye began to peek through the hole.
Beyond the light I saw it all. Beyond the shinning light within the wall I felt my face crack a smile. With my body pressed against the wall my eye saw HAPPINESS.
My fingers began wedging open the hole in the wall. I wanted to be beyond the wall and closer to Happiness. I wanted to leave the comfort of my room and break through the hole in my wall.
I pried the hole open. Feeling all the pieces of the wall tumbling onto the ground. After much digging the hole in the wall became large enough for my slim body to climb into.
The light took me in. I looked back at the darkened room once then continued my path.
My path towards the florescent light of Happiness.
There will always be millions of stars to wish upon but, this one shined bright just for me. This one illuminated the night awaiting for my wish.
I sat outside and took a deep breath, closed my eyes and made my wish. As the star raced through the night sky, I made my wish.
Never knowing if it will ever come true but, with my being I hoped it would.
Never telling anyone what I’ve wished for yet, wanting it come true as much as many other who’ve sat outside wishing upon a Star.
I found a photo of you while I was cleaning. There you were, I thought I was ok without you. Then, my heart skipped and I could feel the butterflies in my stomach.
After so many months I realized I still loved you and I truly missed you.
We plant the seed to see its beauty. We nurture the seed in anticipation for what is to come. We watch it grow and blossom into what we have all imagined. After a while it dies and we nurture it once more. Same goes with love. Through time we have to take time to maintain the love or else it will begin to die and the pedals begin to fall. Without love there is no seed. Without the seed there are no blossoms. Without blossoms there is only gloom…..
Could our shadows show the path to our true happiness??
Or could the darkness shed light on our Pain??
He softly took her hand and held it. Took it to his lips and kissed it. Her eyes met his and she smiled. The smile he was searching for within her was what made their connection true. Her smile was his sunshine. He knew that her love for him was supernatural. It was as if he was invincible as long as she was by his side. She was his oasis. His very own private beach and he knew his sand was better than any other. He loved her and wanted to hold her hand until the end of time. He held her hand and kissed it once more before the night was over and his sunshine smiled again. She made his soul happy.
