I know how it feels like, Darling.

I know that you are mad about him in a way that makes you appear idiotic in your own eyes, which are filled with hope and desire.

I know that when you stare into his caramel-colored eyes, you feel like somewhere inside, you can find the key to his heart.

I know that when you are with him, the whole world vanishes and you feel complete in a way that you could never experience with anyone else.

I know that when you make him laugh, your whole body silently explodes with ecstasy that you yourself did not even know existed.

I know that when your bodies touch, it is not only the physical, but also the soul that touches, leaving you in a trance-like state of euphoria.

I know that you want to jump into his arms and squeeze him to death, yet you remain self-controlled to not reveal your insane fervor towards him.

Hold on Darling, you must stay calm.

Because,

I also know that one day, he will see your hidden craziness towards him as a gift from the universe.

I also know that one day, he will stare into your sparkling emerald-colored eyes, knowing that he found the key to your heart.

I also know that one day, when he is with you, he will ask himself how he hasn’t felt this way earlier; not clearly realizing your inner beauty that completes him in the utmost way.

I also know that one day, when you make him laugh, he knows that no one will be able to coax a smile as enormous as the one you are able to spread on his face.

I also know that one day, when your bodies touch, your spirits will combine and melt into one infinite form that no one will ever be able to demolish.

I also know that one day, when he takes you into his arms and squeezes you to death, you will feel like the most fortunate individual in the whole entire world, not knowing that he is the fortunate one to be with someone like you.

Patience; it’s the secret, Darling.
