My Chrysalis

Of the first snowfall, of the first bonfire, of the first kiss of the first realization; this winter will be etched in my memory till eternity.

It was just a casual kiss on the lips, a dare that his friends had put him to; yet it had warmed the depths of my soul.

Between our friends amusing banters to our earnest "we're just friends" remarks, when my heart skipped a beat and started yearning for my best friend as he sat right beside me, I do not know.

But I do know now, how one touch can change you for a lifetime; how one winter can blank out all other 18 winters since you were born.

...
How I am set to start fresh as this soft velvety snow melts; ready to escape my chrysalis and take flight into a woman's world.
