My life was lonely before you came.
It felt like living in a nutshell
for so long that I almost forgot
how it feels like breathing new air.

I didn’t wish for you,
you never expected me either.
It was just the late afternoon in March
when someone knocked on the corners of my void
and disturbed a feeling still foreign to me.

Your presence opened a soft door.
The butterflies inside me cracked the shell more so I got out.
Love, it was unexpected freedom.

But thank you for passing by.
