“One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten! Ready or not here I come!”. There are so many questions going through my mind on why I still love you. I did everything just to forget about you and move on, but I could not do it. One, I love you with all my heart that I do not even think of myself anymore that I stopped the world, only for you. Two, loved no one else except you that hearts seem to be toys that would not want to share to others because it would only be shared to you. Three, we are like kids who are playing hide and seek that we do not know who is the “it”, and who is the one that is lost. Four, started a war between black and white that apparently seems that one person is unarmed yet, fought with hearts because time is the only enemy. Five, counting is almost over but I still do not know where to hide: under the shades of the tree, or under the shades of our heart. Six, the sky filled with stars are shining bright with the breeze of the cool wind. We sat because you wanted me to listen to your lovely voice-filled with stories, whereby I am the only one who listen to you even though the world is talking yet we still hear each other. Seven, I love you, so I always pay close attention to you while we lay down on the grass full of flowers that are blooming around. Eight, I keep on listening to you because I know the feeling of being ignored and rejected by the world around us. Being ignored, even though I cried out to the skies above that are high as our hopes and dreams for each other. Fireflies are glowing in the dark but I still do not see anything even though both of my eyes are wide open. Nine, I love you but we are like birds that are caged inside with no freedom. Hearts are chained but still trying hard to reach each other’s hands that are from opposite page. Ten, I love you but… you love someone else.
I will fight for you with all my heart and I will stop the world for you. I will fight for you, just like how little kids play and fight for a toy. I will fight for you in the game of Hide and Seek because I will look for you, even though I am scared of the dark, scared that I would lose you – that your love for me would vanish. I will fight the swords of time just to say “I love you.”I will fight for you under the sky full of stars. I will fight for you because I do not want you to face and experience being ignored and rejected. I will fight for you because I want to set you free. I will fight for you… because I love you. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten – I’ve already finished counting to ten but why is it that my heart still keeps on shouting your name?
