“Opposites attract,” they said.
Never have i ever believed in it.
Never will i ever believe in it.
Or so i thought….
It’s when she stumbled as she entered the room then, embarrassed, smiled sweetly.
I hate this.
How can someone come to a job interview looking like this?! Dressing like this?!
I hate this.
Little did i know that she would change my life.
Little did i know that her messiness would tidy up my life.
She barged into my life without any warning.
I hate that too.
I tried my best to avoid her, but it turns out what you are avoiding is probably what you need to explore.
She was fire.
I was water.
Together, we formed a necessary paradox, not a senseless contradiction.
Minute by minute,
Day by day,
Week by week,
Her impulsiveness blabbered my cautiousness.
She pumped courage into my veins and I tamed her fire before it went wild.
They said I was the gravity for her free fall.
But, in reality, we balanced each other.
Just like the opposite poles of a magnet attract, we did.
Just like simplicity and complexity need one another, we did.
I love that.
I felt whole beside her, incomplete without.
I felt alive with her, alone without.
Thats why never will I ever doubt us.
And never will i ever doubt the existence of love.
