They are funny things initially - you laugh at them when you don’t get the feelings and the meaning behind their words. They seem so foreign, but when you hone in, you find them to be more than just alien- they are also amusing and enticing at the same time. So you casually let them inside your life without much thought.
Then you realize this was exactly what you had sought- the missing link had appeared! Your emotions miraculously start reflecting in them, as their drum starts beating to your heartbeat and your heart starts conquering your mind. You suddenly get each other so clearly like best friends- which are admittedly hard to find.
Until one day in a snap, your heart snaps in two. Now your bond shifts, and changes and intensifies so swiftly that it becomes the only hope for you to survive. You dive in and out of your sorrow day in day out when in the end you stand at the edge of sanity, with just them to rope you down despite the difficulty. It feels like you are bound down a sharp cliff.
But you start to heal, slow as seasons you finally ease into your new reality. Your partnership moulds into something more casual to eventually an on and off relationship – like a gym playlist. Neither strangers nor lovers, just something in between, you acknowledge each other like acquaintances, eventually dissolving into a name with no gist.
