My Girl

I feel very in love right now.

You see, I’ve been in love with this girl for six years now. I met her in high school and it was love at first sight. She was the first and last girl I ever had feelings for.

Our relationship hasn’t been easy, and there have been tons of ups and downs. Like many others, I came from a background where homosexuality just wasn’t acceptable and this played havoc with my feelings and caused many an identity crisis. I often blamed it on her because I was so weak when it came to the social pressure around me.

But she has been in my life and a part of my world. I see her in things every day, in small details that remind me of her. 

And after six years of confusion, ups and downs, hardships… I feel like I can finally say that there’s nothing stopping me this time.

This time we do this right.
