That Look (2010)
From the Daily Post Prompt: He’s So Fine
Though we met as kids, we are together again for the last 4.5 years. I’d gone to school with him for three grades (and had such a crush on him.. watching him date one girl and then another), but knew him for much longer as he is my best friend’s cousin. He was funny, always in the wrong place at the right time, bright, sweet, cocky and irresistible. I was drawn to him like a magnet!
We’d run into each other here and there, but because we had gotten caught kissing when we were 15 (and that is quite the story in itself as every relative of his already knew me and to this day remembers the night we were caught kissing at the cottage!), we were always silently forced into separate corners of a room.
Both of married long-term and both of us have similar sad stories to our marriages. It is odd how many times we were just around the corner from each other.. always just out of reach, but always almost there.
So many years later, I am so glad that fate has had its way and brought us together again. We balance each other so beautifully. This is a little poem that I wrote for him because of how he has always made me feel. 🙂
