We gave bits of our hearts
to all the wrong people
who felt right, then.
We spent months and years
piecing ourselves back
only to be broken over and over again.
Till we stopped and learned to accept ourselves less than whole.
Was it resignation to fate?
having been so exhausted of the rigmarole;
that we missed signals from the universe repeatedly,
and the universe had no choice but to intervene?
Because then, one fateful day
we stumbled upon each other
and it was as if our broken fragments
were meant to fit together perfectly
with each other’s mosaic.
why we never felt complete
even though we didn’t know it then;
We did not know, did we?
that we were the cosmic kaleidoscope project
and this is why I love you the way I do
not because you give me what I need
but because you give me those things I never knew I needed.
