One thing you might not know about me is that I love writing even though nowadays I don’t have as much time to write as I’d like. But as I was going through some old files through my computer I found these short stories and scenes I wrote for my Creative Writing class last year.
Here’s one of the pieces I wrote:
‘I’ve missed this.’ I told him.
‘I’ve missed the sound of waves crashing onto the shore. It’s like the sea sings this beautiful symphony that makes my heart feel safe and my soul at home. I’ve missed the sea breeze, this salty, yet fresh air that invades my lungs and makes my blood rush through my veins. I’ve missed the feeling that warm sand gives me whenever I walk down the beach. But what I’ve missed the most was just looking at the endless blue that makes me feel so small and powerless yet so alive and happy. I can’t believe I’m here again. I love it.’
‘And I love you.’ He said as he hugged me from behind and kissed me on the cheek.
‘I love you too. Thank you.’
‘Thank me for what?’
‘Thank you for everything. Thank you for bringing me here. Thank you for loving me so selflessly. Thank you for making me happy.’
‘No, my dear, thank you. Thank you for coming into my life and making me so immensely happy. Not a minute goes by without feeling grateful for all the love you give me. I couldn’t even imagine my life without you.’
We were looking into each other’s eyes. My heart was pounding so hard I thought it was going to break through my chest. I felt like all my life led to this moment. He kissed me and I swear that when our lips touched, I could taste the next fifty years of my life.
At that moment the alarm went off. I tried to hold on to that moment for as long as I could, but it was too late. I was already waking up.
