THE PROM

"So dear I love him that with him,
All deaths I could endure.
Without him, live no life."
-William Shakespeare




No pattern less melody plays as gentle music to my ears, except for his laughter. His soft touch becalms all worries and fears. With just a smile, he magically brings me ecstasy.

An hour before, he snappily wore his favorite blue long sleeves, a yellow silk tie and a slate-grey coat. He fixed his hair and sprayed his favorite cologne. He carried the bouquet of white roses and stood in front of the mirror. He perfectly saw a reflection of a young gentleman.


His deep reflections kept him from noticing the time which caused his tardy arrival on the venue. He was overwhelmed to see a shiny crowd. Tears of happiness almost fell from the boy’s eyes as he searched the dance floor. Suddenly, somebody surprisingly grabbed his hand and took him in an empty corner, amidst the moving crowd. They just simply held hands and shared a moment of silence. Their souls entwined and their hearts lifted their bodies from the dance floor. They nourished a love as strong as a prayer.


The scent of the flowers was breath from his lips. The wide space around me was his tender embrace. And when the wind blows on my cheeks, was his heaven-scent kiss.

Nalito lang ako. There's a first person (me in the 1st paragraph) related to the second person -the guy. And there's a 3rd person who grabbed the guy, which I think is another guy. Sa last paragraph, mahirap masabi kung sino yung he/him.

maybe the 'me' in the 1st paragraph is the same person who grabbed the guy.... hindi kaya?

un lang hindi na siya 1st person's point of view gaya ng sa simula... hmmmmmmmmm.... ???

Payabangan lang kung sino ang makakapag-dala ng pinaka-maganda or pinaka-sikat na babae sa prom. Pataasan ng ihi, kasi all boys school. hehe
