Smitten

We try so hard to build walls around ourselves but with the right person it all comes crumbling down. We’re most vulnerable with the ones we love and yet we feel the safest with the very same people.

We eagerly wait for that moment, when the world comes to a standstill. It’s that moment when nothing else matters except for that one person you’re with. It’s that moment when you feel the happiest. Yes, we’re all afraid. And many times those fears come true but there’s no stopping yourself from falling in love. It’s this very fear that urges you to look for more.
Nothing could stop me from falling in love, with him.He brings out the extremes in me – my best and worst. A lot of times, I feel maniacal because I can switch from low to high in the very same conversation and yet it all feels so normal. It’s easy to blame it on the female hormonal instincts but it’s not really that. Is it? Most often the people we love the most make us the craziest.

We grow up dreaming of that one true love, our first kiss, our first date, our first getaway. Having lived most of these dreams, there’s yet so much more I look forward to. So many dreams yet to come true, with him.

Have you ever felt like you’re in the right place with the right person even when every other force works so hard in tandem to pull you apart? This feels just like it. We’re so different yet so compatible, we’re nothing like what we’ve imagined and yet it’s all we want. And while the future is far ahead, the present seems just right. You’ve got to defy all that works against you for as long as you can. Until you’re crushed to bits and there’s nothing you can fix.

And if you don’t, how will you experience the purest form of happiness? How will you experience the joy that knows no bounds?

How will you experience…

That morning kiss that lasts for hours giving you an adrenaline rush you’ve never felt before. Your heart beats faster with every passing second. You have butterflies in your stomach, going wild like never before. You hold on and gaze into each other’s eyes with so much passion. You hold on to that moment like there is no tomorrow. You complete each other in a way that no one else can. You fill the spaces that once seemed empty. You lie there together in that moment, in love. Still, you draw closer exposed yet safe, with desire and love.

Just like I did, with him.
