My September Friend


You read my work
And commented as a stranger
your comments made it straight to my heart
Till they hit the right nerve
I thought about you
And I kept thinking about you…

A few months later,
Twitter got us into our dms
Just checking on each other and Wondering how the day had treated us
The idea of us was so strong
That it cut through to our Whatsapp
2am became our new 5pm as we brought the idea to life
Our conversations were(and are still) heavenly

After 2 weeks of glorious paintings and imaginations
We let our eyes meet for the very first time
And our legs to move besides each other
That walk in the forest was a walk to remember
Our first hug landmarked the beginning of a new friendship
One that would be so real and go beyond expectations
One that always gives us a reason to live again


is here, and I call it our lucky month
I cherish you

A piece inspired by one of my friends whose availability for me is admirable.

I love you!
