He was invited by our good friend to sing for the crowd. The people tease him more to provoke him on getting the stage and give a roaring performance. He did not dismay the crowd that is craving for a soulful show. He sighs and finally stands. That really gets the patrons in that lounge going. Our good friend shows a delighted smile and taps his right shoulder. A clear sign of do good and have fun! As his response, he smiles at our friend and head towards the stage. The people give him a resounding applause and cheer. One of the band members smiles and gives him an electric guitar. He grabs it and hangs it on his body. Before he started his performance, a few words were spoken: “I can’t find a way how to say what’s on my mind, what I feel. It’s like running out of words and guts. I became meek but not until this time…please listen to me…open your heart.” He uttered those words in front of the crowd while strumming his guitar and the song began….
I don’t know what I’m feeling right now. The people around were already serenaded by his soothing voice and the heartfelt song… strange really is; I am precise that he’s looking straight at me. It’s as if he is telling something to me through his song. I can see it in his eyes. I’m afraid, is this it? Maybe, I can feel it since then but it became buried deep down my heart.
It seems like a forgotten feelings has come its way to shine again. My heart has been triggered and has the tendency to burst in happiness. A long wait has come to an end. The feeling of warmness, caring, sincerity and love has invaded me.
As the song ends, an echoing applause and encore are the sounds that can only be heard. Some even gave him a standing ovation. He bowed to the crowd and answered their praises through a smile. Even I and our friends stand to show our appreciation; he glances to our place and I gave him a nod for a job that is beyond well done. He continues to stare at me, it’s as if he’s eyes is asking me if I did get his message. At that moment, I know that he’s not lying. I know deep down my heart he’s sincere and I’ll be so dumb not to tell him that we share the same feelings.
It’s 30 minutes past 9 in the evening; two people were sitting comfortably on a bench and staring blankly at the sky full of stars. It is the perfect way to spend the night after fulfilling a day of chaotic work schedule; a moment of serenity with the person of your life and heart. They haven’t spoken a word with each other for a couple of minutes. They’re just glancing once in a while…
B: Do you know how do I call us?
G: No. What is it?
B: We are star-crossed lovers.
G: Wow! How did you come up with that?
B: Take a look at those stars shining up on the sky?
There are millions or probably billions of them, right?
Those are like us. We used to be miles away from each other.
There are possibilities that we may not get the chance to know one another because they’re lots of hindrances on our path.
They are plenty of shimmering temptations everywhere.
It seemed that we have each other’s way since the beginning, just like how the constellations were connected.
There are no visible lines that show to us how they’re linked with the other. It’s just like they know it by their own.
They may be distanced to one another and people might not easily figure out what symbols do they actually represent but they remain connected with each other.
Others say that we’re totally unlike and we were born and raised differently.
For me, it’s fate…miracle…destiny. Our paths intertwined to let us meet, love and be together.
G: Indeed. Do you know what kind of constellation we are?
