I blink, and you're gone. Everything I knew, everything I loved, gone before I knew you were leaving. One phone call, one phrase, one person shattered my world.
I'm still unsure how I got to this point.

Being born an Aquarius almost predestined me to become one of the leaders of tomorrow. Independently shaping my own future, calling my own bets, that's how I knew my life would always be until I met him. The guy who taught me everything about life, love, and happiness. This was done subconsciously of course. Any guy that actually thinks he's helping a girl find herself, would run far, far away. Even though he did, but it was after 6 months of being engaged and 2 months of dating.

I met him without trying. I picked him up without trying, fell in love without trying, and became happy without trying. Now for someone who has had to try at everything her whole life, even tieing my shoes took about 3 years to learn, this was a new experience for me. I was caught in a whirlwind of emotion, saying 'yes' to be his fiancee, before I even knew the question he was asking.

He came, he went. Now he's gone. I blink again to make sure I'm not dreaming. Still gone.
