A Thousand Miles…
She kept asking me, why I loved her so much. She considers me as a guy who is out of her league. Little did she know. I had perfect answers for her. I told her how ruined my life was before her. How sleepless nights of hacking and codes carved a huge hole in my heart. How heartbroken I was when my ex-girlfriend left me for a less sensitive guy. How ‘not-worth-saving’ I was for I have seen most of the dirt in the history of mankind. How I was walking dead, everyday.
Despite all this, She came into my life… out of the blue… to hug me so tight that the small bits of my heart came together and healed. I was not worth saving and she saved me anyway.
We fell in love, reading the letters we wrote to each other in our dear journals. And that was just a few months ago. And yes, we are in a long distance relationship. What we write with our hand is priceless to us. We dream together… creating secret boards on Pinterest. I code at day and she studies. We talk at night, the things we have to do, the places to travel, the food we need to cook together. I read her stories over the phone to sleep. Gave my entire playlists to her hoping she won’t miss me while listening to it.
She is a thousand miles away and that makes me very sad at times. I am not there when she needs me the most. But I love her, she loves me, hoping one day we can be together. We both work towards it. And we believe, we will be together. Don’t know how. But we will grow old together.
There are bigger things than belief. Promises. I promised her, that she won’t ever be alone, that I will never leave her, that I and she are for life. We find relief in our favorite song. Hey Their Delilah by Plain White T
A thousand miles seems pretty far
But they’ve got planes and trains and cars
I’d walk to you if I had no other way
Our friends would all make fun of us
And we’ll just laugh along because
We know that none of them have felt this way
Delilah, I can promise you
That by the time we get through
The world will never ever be the same
And you’re to blame
My home is where she is and my heaven is on her laps. When the city sleeps, I wake up, work for a dream, to make the world a better place and waiting for the day, when we will be together.
P.S: I’m no writer. Just a programmer who is working hard to be awesome, do the right thing and live life to the fullest and everyday as his last. And this is my first one in Medium.
