A Boy and A Girl

By @mischa143kelvin

Once there was a boy and a girl

The boy is a good friend to the girl

The girl is a charming child

The boy loved her dearly

She was the sunshine of his life

When all he has was full of darkness

Darkness that overcame his life

He is cold and lonely

But one day, a girl came to him

Asking if he was alright

Nobody cares for the boy

Because he is nothing

But the girl doesn’t mind if she gets dirty

All she has done was give her hand to the boy

And smile at him saying, “Come, everything will be alright”

So, he take her hand and go with her

She led him to a place he never seen before

A place where everything is so beautiful

Everything is so peaceful

And she is the center of it

They walk and walk until they stop at the top of the mountain

A mountain where you will see everything

He look up the sky and a full bright stars shining at them

As if smiling and saying, “Don’t worry everything will be alright”

And then he heard a giggling laugh

Then he look to the place where he heard the sound

He found the girl smiling and laughing saying, “Come, follow me, everything will be alright”

So he followed her until she stops

Her back was turned on him

He tries to reach out and ask “What is going on?”

The girl face her and she smiles a full bright smile and say, “I want to set your hearts free”

He is so confused but he can’t help but trust her

“Close your eyes” the girl said so he close his eyes

And there was a bright light

And everything came back to him

The memories of his life flashes behind his eyes

Every heartache and pain

Every wounds inflict on his body

Every bitter words thrown at him

Every person who ignore his agony

Everything came back so fast

He feels nothing but pain

He feels he is in deep pit of darkness

He just want to be free

He just cried with silent tears

He just want to feel loved

It doesn’t matter how small it is

He just want to accept him for who he is

He remembers when he was a kid

He is a happy child with a happy and loving family

Everything is so simple yet they are contented

But everything shatters in just a matter of seconds

A seconds that cost everything he dearly loved to disappeared forever

He is the only one left behind to pick up the pieces of his life

The pieces that everything he cares about

The only memories of his happy life

Now here he lies bleeding and broken and left for a dead

He still wish that before everything ends

He wish to see his loving family once and for all

And then he heard a voice saying, “Open your eyes, everything will be alright”

And then he open his eyes

At first all he sees is a light full of brightness

He tried to cover his eyes

When the light deems to a normal bright

He open his eyes, he couldn’t believe at what he was seeing

He is amazed at what he is seeing

Everything he is dreaming of has been here in front of him

And so he smiles the brightest smile he never dreamed he could be

And there at the center of it is the girl that led him here

To the place where everything that he wish for is here

He could never thank her enough

For there was his family smiling and waiting for him

Home is where the heart is.
