The day a bear and pixie fell in love

by Em (marmite)   Oct 2, 2018

years had passed both by in a blur -
of sadness and searching
when he messaged her,
a simple message of intrigue
which peaked her interest
for she'd only been greeted by toads
in this, the online 'dating’ scene.

They quickly swapped numbers
(she needed to log off but something felt right about this stranger)
to hell they were soon breaking all rules -

a week came to pass with the blink of an eye

soon she was waiting for her train
as he got into his trusted car
to rendezvous for the first time -
it may have been April but
the weather was kind to them that day
(funny how things like that stay embedded in your mind forever, isn't it?)

A brisk walk or 2 around the park holding hands
she mellowed being by his side
as he stopped to kiss her gently -
things felt positively happy
even though both had baggage that made them afraid to love again
yet because neither of them had expectations
their love began to bloom that day

neither of them knew how or why
to this day 17.5 months down the line
they're none the wiser
still their love blossoms through all weathers

It's strange how they both imagined they'd never see the other again, all those months ago -
now, they can't see a life without the other one in it.

    I like this. Swapping past with present in the imagined and the unimaginable always makes me curious about what else the future could hold.

    The trials and tribulations of online dating. I can relate, no success as yet though haha! A lovely story to hear, when some are so negative.
    Lovely and hope the sun keeps shining :)

    Were Bear and Pixie your online names? Sorry, Em, just inquisitiveness (see nosiness!)

    Anyway, to the point: this is lovely.

    Em, I really can't think of a nicer person that you, or one that is more deserving of love like this. Bear and Pixie forever. x
