We were as different as 2 individuals can ever be. We never agreed on anything except on one thing:DANCE
For years we never see eye to eye, but God had plans for the both of us. We became the best of friends and then we became more than that..
8 years we faced everything life could possibly throw at us, and we remained strong. We surpassed illness, misunderstandings, and even the lost of a love one.
Majority of the time, I was handed the short end of the stick. I was always the one with the problems. You knew me better than anyone. I was never the one to wear my heart on my sleeve. I never lash out. I don't even shed a tear when I feel down. You were the only one who can see right through me. You can even sense that something wasn't right even through a simple text.
We were a team..We will always be a team. I don't know how the system went during the years that we were a couple, but it worked.
We know that we are far beyond perfect, maybe that's what made our relationship strong. We had our share of trials, but we remained steadfast.
People love the way our relationship goes. They don't know how we did it, but they love the way we work together. We are not the most ideal of relationships, and we are not conventional as all couple go but it works for us.
Remember the song we shared when we first got together?
Remember the line," the vacuous night steps aside to give meaning to Gemini's dreaming"?
It was..and it will always be our song. It was depressing for most parts, and its meaning cloaks the most tragic story of romance ever written, but we loved it. We loved how a song so short could speak volumes.
We never had the same taste in music, and we were introduced to different forms of dance, but again we compromised. You supported me when I danced to the classical sound of Giselle and Nutcracker, and I cheered you on when you get down to the beat of Snoop Dogg and the Teriyaki Boys. You grimace but lend your ears to my weird taste in music when I force you to listen to the songs the likes of Wild Belle's "Keep You" and Scotty McCreery's "I Love You this Big", and I try my best not to scrunch my nose up when you keep playing your Christmas songs all year round.
We were never conventional, and we have the weirdest relationship any person could encounter, but it was perfect for the both of us. It was our own version of a fairy tale.
Now, the fates handed you a short straw, and I see you slowly fall apart. I never knew we could come to a point that our unconventional way of dealing with things would slowly leave us broken. Our exterior is cracking, and people can feel the tension. We never hang our dirty linen in public, but my heart soared for the support we are receiving.
Now it's my turn to be the strong wall you can lean on. I want you to know that it would take more than this incident to break us apart. We are, after all, super heroes. You have been there through all the tough times in my life, and I promise you I won't leave now. Though you did not utter a word, I know you need me now. We may have to go about our daily routines, but I know you do feel that I am with you 24/7.
The song goes,"We'll have about an inch space, But I'm here.I can breathe in what you breathe out"
Yes..I'm here. I'm not leaving..
We may have been built on tough love. No mushiness when it comes to dealing with each other, but now is the time to let them see that we are indeed what we are built out of:TOUGH LOVE
Love was never a responsibility for the both of us. It was what we were accustomed to..It was like we were indeed created to fit each other perfectly..like 2 perfect pieces of a puzzle. It was a way of life for the both of us.
Presence was never an issue for we have always been with each other through good times and bad.
You have been beaten down by things beyond our control, but we will get through this. We always do.
We managed to survive bouts of emotional typhoons and hurricanes. A little drizzle cannot wash away our foundation.
I never been one to express myself emotionally, but now I am laying this all out in the open.
I support you, and I will always be here for you.
We are 2 parts of a whole..
We are strong..
We are resilient..
We will always be "Supertwins"..
after all..we are GEMINI..
