I meant it when I said I didnt believe in love at first sight. It takes time to really truly fall for someone. Yet I believe in a moment. A moment when you glimpse the truth within someone and they glimpse the truth within you. At that moment you dont belong to yourself any longer not completely. Part of you belongs to him part of him belongs to you. After that you cant take it back no matter how much you want to no matter how hard you try. I believe
in love at first sight
but I will always believe
that the people
we have loved before.
Many many many times before
and when we stumble
through grace and circumstance
and that brilliant illusion of choice
to finally meet them again
we feel it faster
each time through.
The one glance
that set life alight
are two sets of two eyes
staring through the layers of lifetimes and stolen glances
and first kisses and hands held the brace against the weight and unrelenting tide of waiting. I believe
in love at first sight
but am not burdened with the misconception that it's the first sight
at all. You see the first thing we love is a scene. For love at first sight requires the very sign of its suddenness; and of all things it is the scene which seems to be seen best for the first time: a curtain part and what had not yet ever been seen is devoured by the eyes: the scene consecrates the object I am going to love. The context is the constellation of elements harmoniously arranged that encompass the experience of the amorous subject

I had my supper and went to sleep.
I was disturbed by a call.

I didn't recognize the voice so I checked the caller ID and it was a strange number...

I checked the time and it was 23:46hrs .and to my disappointment ray didn't even call me some...I cuddled myself to sleep ...I woke up at 05 and started preparing for my 8hrs class.

I wanted to pass by Ray's room before I go to class.
she didn't say anything. I walked out and went to his room he was sleeping. he smelled like he slept in a tank of beer.
hey " I shook him gently

I got up and went to class. I received a text from Caleb. I just ignored him.
