He was the best thing that had ever happened to me. He had the most beautiful smile with teeth as white as snow. Everything was just perfect about him. But I knew it was all too good to be true…

I understand now that you’ll meet certain people that you’ll click with instantly. You’ll get to taste life with them, share lazy bed days and walks on the beach together, share a bottle of gin or beer together even go M.I.A from time to time. Sharing that secretive smile when our eyes met was the best feeling in the world.

He used to tell me that I was the most beautiful flower he had ever seen. I loved him and believed everything he was telling me. But he was just very committed to his lies. Everything I thought didn’t make sense, he had a way of making it seem like it did.

My mom used to tell me, “Nokuthula, abafana bayafana bonke futhi bayizinja.” Funny how I didn’t believe that.

But I learnt not to focus on anything negative because there are people out there that will make life worthy.
