Nights like these

Once upon a time there was a girl. Wrapped in a sheet, she laid in bed watching him scroll through her music library. She had just given him everything her heart, mind and body had to offer.  He was indeed a beautiful man: the personification of childhood wishes on far away stars. In this moment the world seemed to reach an equilibrium, where all the pain of the past was finally balanced by the happiness of the present.

Turning to her, he broke the comfortable silence that had settled over the room and told her she was incredible. She smiled, her heart skipped a beat and she wondered if this would be that moment. After a contemplative pause he told her one day she was going to meet someone that would love her the way she deserved.

Shattered, she whispered that she thought she already had.
