It’s a Long Story...

I can’t help but remember the day I met him. The man with the vibrant green eyes, like sunstained grass in early autumn mornings. Heavy eyebrows that fell over the thick, dark lashes - shadowing the kaleidoscopic, picturesque features. A sculpted chin and high chiseled cheekbones, everything about him was seemingly impossible, improbable for anyone to attain such beauty. I’d fallen in love.

The ones that are olive green, accented with mocha browns and shades of beige. At first I was skeptical, then grateful, then furious. I appreciated him helping me and seeing that I slept alright, (which, to be frank, was unsettling), but I had missed the flight down to Waco.
