Something Different for a change

(ed: he insisted on writing it this way today. So bear with him)

He looked at hisscreen and before him lay words so deep and so touching, that he felt the hot tears welling in his eyes. The more he read, the more those tears stood ready to burst through their dams. Before he knew it, they had burst through andhe felt hot tears streak across my face, like F1 drivers in a hurry to the checkered flag.

He looked back on the past, and he knew assuredly that this was one of his firsts. No woman had ever touched him the way that she had. He was a man of words; constantly burying his nose in books. She had touched him at his most deepest, most private corner. Wise men say that the way to man's heart is his stomach, not that this isn't true, it's just that she had found his heart through words.

He didn't need to think of how to reply to her soft gentle words. He didn't even need to look at his fingers as they typed what his heart longed to say. As he stared at the words forming on his screen, behind those teary eyes, he saw the song from his heart pour out into black symbols.

Did these symbols truly represent his deepest feelings for the woman he loved? He felt as if they were inadequate. His heart promised to love her for as long as it could muster strength to beat. It knew not what came after death, but it knew if there was life thereafter, it would continue to sing out songs to her. How was he ever going to express what he felt for her? Could he ever?

He clicked that faithful button that immortalised those half-formed expression of his true love for her. And still the tears kept welling up, like a torrential storm on a hot summer's day.

What will happen next? No one knows. The chapters have yet to be written, but he said a silent prayer to God above, and hoped that there would be many long and happy chapters to go.
