Writing this in-class essay about him was therapeutic for me in ways I did not expect & fully grasp until I read it again after I got it back .
My English professor told us the prior class session that we were going to have an in-class writing assignment . She didn’t mention what the theme would be , so we had to think about it on the spot after she told us .
She revealed that we were to write about a person that has had an influence in our lives .
Naturally , he happened to be the first person (outside of my family) that I thought about .
So , without hesitation , I wrote down what having him in my life has taught me & how he’s influenced me .
I often wondered why our paths crossed , but now when I reminisce , the more I think that it was fate .
He was meant to be in my life for a certain period of time to help me grow and learn .
Those lessons were both good and bad , but I’m thankful for them the same .
I needed to go through those growing pains in order to learn more about myself and what I wanted .
All in all , I’m thankful that he was a part of my life because I honestly don’t know who I would be without the lessons that he’s taught me .
For that , I’m forever grateful .
So , thank you .
What if there was a machine that slowed down time & allowed us to linger infinitely in a moment of our choice ?
Don’t be so vain to think that you ruined me,
that you wrecked me,
I am the only one who has the power to do that.
I loved you, and I ruined myself,
I wrecked myself,
I destroyed myself.
And I will keep doing so for as long as I am breathing.
You’ve walked a path all alone, and you wonder what life would be like to walk it with another person.
We’re all lone travelers of our own life. We go through challenges that no one else can see. Some times we keep to ourselves and we don’t share with others.
But perhaps, having another person is about going through this journey with them. Unlike your parents, your friends, you could share things with this person that you keep hidden and sacred.
Someone like another half of you who understands you and you aren’t afraid to let them know everything that goes on for you. A person who is just an extension of yourself like it is of your arms, legs, or body.
But sometimes, you are ambivalent and not sure if you are ready to have something like that. because you are scared. not something you are used to having, but really want or need.
" Now how ‘bout I be the last voice you hear tonight ?
& every other night , for the rest of the nights that there are ?
Every morning , I just wanna see you staring back at me .
Cuz I know that’s a good place to start .”
"Falling in love"
