I call it love.

Daily prompt: Brilliant

I’m brilliant.

I knew it from the very beginning.

I had big ideas,

And dreams I know that could take me far.

But I think I pushed myself too hard,

I fell, I cried,

I made mistakes.

I was sorry,

Sorry for all that is done.

I thought I had to pay the rest of my life for it,

I lost hope.

My dreams had begun to fade,

Faced with too many obstacles I decided to give up.

I grew bitter.

I gave up.

I let life pass me by.

Until one day…

On this day, I found a hand.

I found a hand that was ready to help.

It felt like love,

It was love.

He helped me get back up.

I began to believe in myself again.

I began to believe in the brilliance inside of me.

He offered hope,

He eased my burdens.

He fueled my dreams.

He trusted in the magic and brilliance inside me.

He trusted in them more than I ever had.

We laughed,

And loved.

We share every moment.

But will this be a brilliance left incomplete?
