“My heart beat a little faster as I purposely walked down the street .it was a midsummer night, and there was a lot of activity in the city of Sunshine. I glanced around to make sure that no-one I knew was nearby as I ran to his arms. Without a word, I wrapped my arms around his neck and kissed him speechless.
“It’s good to see you “I said in what I presumed to be an attractive tone “
Then I woke up!
And the first thing I did was scroll down my messages looking for that morning cup of coffee from my object of affection.
“He texted me!” I squealed and danced to no particular audience. I was twenty and in deep like with ‘Jason’. I found myself waking up every morning wondering if he had texted and constantly asking myself “when is the right time to send emoticons “.
Jason became the highlight of my blank pages, the Ken to my Barbie and the sauce to m burger. Even though I had been known to be quite smart, I was head over heels and more devoted to him than anything. I was raised a Christian but he became my Morning glory and Evening glory and the morning devotional I used to have become non-existing.
I was headed for a crash and I just didn’t know it. I found myself waiting for him to text and I saw him in the blank pages of my note pad, in the bus to campus and in the smiley faces on Rumbi’s cookies. Sometimes tears would well up in my eyes when I thought of how he belonged to me and just me. When he told me he loved me that feeling of exhalation ran from my braided roots to my sneaker clad toes. I was in love with a young Adonis and focused on his sand castles dream instead of building my own glass house .Love erupted from my innocent naive heart resulting in – classes unattended d,tests unwrittern and dismal grades .
I would sit all night staring at a math formula whilst day dreaming of hazel eyed and masculine physique .I had a wake up call to my state of insanity when I had three supplementary exams and general passes .
Love had taken over peddled with memory loss.. I had to get out ..
