Butterflies.......


He stares at you for a couple of seconds as he walks past . You literally feel things moving in your belly, you turn away and blush.

Hours later on your bed at night, you can’t help but constantly think of him. Blushing. Wondering if you’d see him the next day.

School is over, holiday lessons are on. You looked forward to attending only because he’d be in class, even though you don’t say a word to him. You are complete, just by being in the same room with him.

At the same bus/train station every morning on your way to your faculty......your heart does its own workout, racing when no one asked it to.

You get a job, and he’s there, on the second floor.

Another good day at the office.

You look forward to lunch at your regular spot, he walks in at exactly 1:30pm .......

The butterflies are still there.

Such a wonderful feeling........

Every girl must have been in at least one out of all these scenarios if not all.

*

We met a while ago.

We became friends, then we became more than friends

Or so I thought.

He was kind, funny, and very caring

He had a secret, he had another friend.

We became foes whilst we were still friends.

I was torn

*

And then I met him.

We became friends, real friends.

He was kind, funny and very caring

We became more than friends..........No secrets.

We found love in each other

Pure Love.

Such a wonderful feeling.

And after so long, it keeps growing everyday

I feel the butterflies.........all over again.

Like I’m 13.

I have a crush on him

*

Seriously, it was satisfying just seeing your crush when we were younger......how come that isn’t the case now? Seeing is good, but it just doesn’t cut it.

It is evident that the older we get, the more things change, it’s no wonder a 27+ year old finds it hard to find a single man these day, because like us, men at 27+ usually have partners.

It’s funny the way life pans out, we have plans, dreams, expectations, we worry at a certain age if we haven’t achieved certain things. We worry that we might not be able to achieve certain things that we think we need in order to take the next step.

If we stop, pause and take a look at where we are coming from, we notice that even though we had our so called “phenomenal plans” we ended up in a much better place, without that thing we thought was the key to our next step.

Everyone has their time, and that time is unique to him/her, so do not panic if your younger sister is married and you’re not, or if you do not have a job and your twin has been promoted twice. Your time will come...........

PS: So the kidnapping is getting out of hand.....what is up with this nation!

leggy said...

lol..i love the poem like ish.

Naughty Eyes said...

Quite some wonderful analogies you used here. Painted the picture of crushes so well.

Oddly enough, we all feel this way - men and women alike - though not so many would admit it.

"It is evident that the older we get, the more things change, it’s no wonder a 27+ year old finds it hard to find a single man these day, because like us, men at 27+ usually have partners."

True, but trust me, many 27+ men find it very hard to find a single lady these days...

Nice Anon said...

Me sef don confuse. Who is this HIM?
Yeah the kidnappings are no longer funny.

Rita said...

I remember those sweet butterfly feelings...sometimes followed by my heart pounding against my chest...

I agree with you, this kidnapping thing is getting out of hand like joke like joke...

Temite said...

I remember men...there was a boy that I used to sit outside my grandma's shop (Gmama thought I was being helpful) for hours just to see him walk past. lol....
I cant do that anymore....
Oh Im glad you have found the one that makes you feel like that again. God makes everthing beautiful in his time.

I love this post. I am always in crushes. I always get over them too. Everyone's time will come. It might just take a while or another form.

Miss Definitely Maybe said...

Butterflies doing summersaults in my tummy

making me do all sorts of gawky wierd things
I cringe when I remember
and he makes damn will sure he always reminds me
but he still gives me butterflies
*sigh* maybe thats why im still with him

Tigeress said...

Sometimes they signal the beginning of a happy ever after!

@Writefreak...
Nope, just that feeling of sweetness, I like the happily ever after ones though- but, who doesn't?

Everyone gets that feeling but you're so right...There's a time for everything and I know it's true because it's written in Ecclesiastes 3 :)

My new Tweetheart, you've been well and that your week has been good so far.

~SIRIUS~ OOOOOOO!

rethots said...

"If we stop, pause and take a look at where we are coming from,...we ended up in a much better place,..." very true.

But, more importantly, as we journey, we should continually let every experience count as a lesson for the morrow.
