I saw you first when you opened the gate for me, just how a prince does in fairy tales,
you were dressed in dark blue jeans, and blue tees of a shade even darker than your jeans’.
“I knew you were trouble when you walked in,” echoed in my mind,
and I knew that you’re the person that I have to avoid at all costs.
Kept reading and kept gazing and kept spending as much time as we could get together,
waiting for the moment when it’ll eventually have to end.
Kept playing games, kept watching sunsets and talking about the necessity of acknowledging toxicity,
kept keeping it casual until it just couldn’t remain casual anymore.
Your smile grew on me even faster than a Taylor Swift sad song,
kept singing Enchanted while actually being enchanted by you.
I understand now why I smiled that way, when I saw you chilling in my favorite spot,
why I couldn’t get the picture of you looking at me as if to comfort me, out of my head.
We are like the couple in a movie who keep pretending as if there’s nothing there between them,
when it’s clear to the audience from the very beginning, that they will end up together eventually.
Your ridiculous attempts at making even more ridiculous jokes to provoke me into a fight,
were as vain as my attempts at staying as far away from you as possible.
Stayed awake till 4 in the morning to talk to you about stuff that I don’t even remember,
sacrificed my afternoon naps to talk to you about my love for Pride and Prejudice.
You and me were destined to meet the way that we did, in circumstances so unusual;
we were destined to end up together the way that we did, so far away from each other.
