There was once this girl. She was slowly breaking on the inside. She laughed and smiled with her friends, and put on a happy show, but no one knew she was caving in.
She made social media accounts and smiled for her photos, and replied to messages in the happiest way she could manage. She had every form of social media imaginable. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.
She met all sorts of pervs, and many sweet people. This show she put on slowly came to a halt, for she had met someone who had begun to repair her.
He was sweet, charming, and handsome. He was all she could ever want and more. But she was still alone.
They spoke for a very long time. Days turned to weeks, and weeks into months. And she fell. She fell hard.
She fell in love with him.
His good nights grew longer, and their conversations grew sweeter. They were stuck in a whirlwind of pent up emotions….. and then it slipped.
In one of the many treasured good nights he spelt out for her in text, an ‘I love you’ stumbled into the writing. She was ecstatic, and he was happy. They had become best friends, but neither were happy with that.
So they went on to begin a beautiful relationship, and he helped her pick up the shattered pieces. He helped fix her. He didnt give up, he didnt give in.
They became lovers. Stuck in the rush of each others skin, the taste of each others lips. And they were happy, but that wasn’t enough.
They started a family. Lovers turned to Husband and Wife, with a beautiful daughter on the way. But she.. she was still dented, cracked, and bruise. He dedicated his every waking moment to healing those wounds.
They brought a beautiful dark haired child in to the world. With his eyes. She wished with all her might that their child might not be like her.
Now, here they are, curled up together in the bed that that very child was conceived in, with two more on the way. And he has fixed her. She calls herself beautiful, and knows it is true.
Although sometimes she breaks, everyone makes mistakes, he is always here to help her patch up the wounds and ward off the pain.
And she loves him.
And he loves her.
