My Rejuvenated Heart

Written by: Leonora Galinta

the sun disappeared and was replaced with a dim moonlight eventually, people around me waned from my sight the flowers in full bloom as if they'd turned back to buds as my angry face became darker and darker like a mud children’s laughter faded and stray dogs started to howl I thought, if he'll show up I’ll throw on his face my ice cream bowl where was his promise to meet me at the park? he was a genuine liar! I was flaring up with my nose seemed spark so hurriedly I went back home closing my fist angrily telling myself if I see him, I’ll tell him to kiss the petunia of my daddy one week later, in front of my door he appeared I turned my back but he begged, please forgive me my dear kneeling in front of me, he offered me chocolates and roses trying to explain showing me his forehead with cuts and bruises feeling so confused, I didn’t know what to do look at him with awe or apply to him my knowledge on taekwondo? he sweetly explained that he hates to see me worry after his accident on his way to the park to celebrate our anniversary I hurriedly hugged and kissed him asking also his forgiveness my heart rejuvenated as he whispered , I love you so much my dear princess!
