Chapter 1

We once were strangers; and now our history passes by us in a blur,

We quickly became friends; I soon wished for our friendship to never end.


We had many laughs, we spent good times; the moments with him have allowed me to climb,

My own walls that enclosed me; I was so close, yet I'm still not free.


And then one day he upset the balance; he spoke the forbidden sentence,

It's true that he made me feel so at peace; yet I know it cannot be.


There's so much distance between us; I'm not sure if our bond will be enough,

To get us through the hardships; how did all of this begin?


I've got so much fear; he's so far away, and yet so near,

I cringe at the thought of my heavy heartache; I don't want to make the same mistake.


Deep down though, something within me yearns; to have someone waiting for me to return,

I have to let go of my past; and enjoy these moments while they last.


Maybe one day; when I'm no longer afraid,

My heart can open up anew; and finally say: "I love you too."

latelundudud: The ending had me ugly crying... I can't even this story is so good... The ending wasn't the normal cliche story ending. Where the mates live happily ever after.
