The first day we met, you’re the centre of attention;
I’m behind everyone else, invisible.
You’re smart, earnest, flawless, with all the patience;
Who am I? Just a lost girl, alone in the jungle.
How do I look straight into your eyes?
When you try to explain something to me,
They are the widest night sky;
With stars, they glow, reflected by the deepest sea.
That day you kissed me, unexpectedly.
It felt so warm, I couldn’t breathe
With your touch, your scent; but I ran away hastily.
Because I couldn’t believe.
After an eternity, you were holding my hands,
Telling me you’re not letting me go after all we’ve shared.
My tears were shed; you said you just need one chance,
To prove that I don’t have to be scared.
Now that we’re finally together,
You’re real, your heart no longer scends;
Except that, in “happily ever after”,
I am the imaginary friend.
