"Sometimes the Universe wants to be noticed."
A ray of twilight, fighting against the daylight and pushing away the darkness, you were the only one of those that I ever saw. I have heard so much about them, how they mark the end of a period only to begin another beautiful one. But I never knew, that I could see one right in front of my eyes.
That's what you were, and always will be. My ray of twilight.
I saw you, not in a picture perfect way or the way they show it in the movies or write about it in novels, I just saw you the way destiny wrote it for us.
You made me feel something, or should I say it was your smile that did the magic. I don't know if I can figure out the reason I felt the warmth growing inside me the moment I saw you, but I do know that it was something I hadn't felt in years. A warmth, that I had been craving as the crystal snow froze me everyday, little by little from inside.
You were shy, yes you were. You tried not to be, and I could see how you attempted to be the strong and confident types that they all wanted you to be but you just couldn't. You couldn't try to present yourself as a stone, when I knew you were delicate like a flower petal.
My eyes were captivated by the beauty that shined, and my heart was mesmerized by the aura that you carried along with you. I saw you drifting away from the reality, and slipping into the world of calmness as the drops of the rain tapped on the window, inviting you to visit deeper and further.
The innocence that your eyes held, that's what it all took. They reminded me of the expanse of snow filled mountains, filling me with a pure white serenity. You were handsome, but you were also beautiful.
The way your smile lead up to the eyes and they turned into curves, I discovered another level of adorableness that day.
And I remember how nervous you were, your hands trembling and your lips that recited an inaudible song, in order to calm you down. You sweeped your hair back, before releasing that you were ruining your perfect outfit that you had been preparing for the interview since last couple of days.
Running your shaky hand, you ruffled the hair back again in order to bring it back to place.
I never understood why you always did that. Maybe nervousness really did get to you very easily.
That was the moment, an unsaid yet the most meaningful in my life. My moment of euphoria.
