He’s the one with a big dirty backpack and creased clothes. His hair is messy with the touch of curly locks after surfing for days. Yet he wouldn’t care to take a shower or grab a comb just because you say so.
His beautifully scarred skin makes you wonder what untold stories are behind it. And when he gets the chance to share it with you, he would talk fast cause he is excited to be heard.
He treasure experiences rather than non-essentials. Cause living out of a backpack has taught him to live happily with less. His soul burns on the thought of his next travel which takes him out of the city that sucks the life out of him.
He has a spontaneous soul that will ask you out on an indefinite adventure. He will make it happen when you thought he won’t. And in a second, you will find yourself having the best time of your life as he leaves you breathless.
But don’t fall in love with a passerby. He’s not the typical guy-next-door like the ones you meet in a coffee shop. He is hard to please. His perception is beyond how others comprehend. He will do what he wants when he feels like it and has the whole world to explore.
He won’t fear bungee jumping or the big barrels that comes after another. Instead commitments are what dreads him. He has slept with a lot of woman and have done a couple of one night stands. He has no permanent address as the passerby has homes everywhere. You won’t know about his whereabouts or who is with him and that leaves you frustrated when you crave for him.
His life is ruled by the moment. He has no plans and it takes him no time to decide when he will move out again. He is unpredictable and that uncertainty between if and when is why you should not fall in love with a passerby.
He is for the brave one. The one who craves possibilities and embraces authenticity out of opening their arms wide on the joy of living simply. The person who doesn’t put limits on his fantasies which is less than his realities.
Cause the passerby understands that we need to live for ourselves. He moves more easily than he gets attached. He is merely ticking off his bucketlist and you can’t keep him. Let him go.
