Do you think about me? I am reading and re-reading everything. I wonder if your words were ever for me or just the person in your imagination. I was never that person was I?
Sun’s coming up.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen you look so sad.
She overlooked the comment. You are one of kind.
And I stand out in the crowd.
Yes, yes you do. No question about that.
Is that why you were always afraid to stand next to me?
A chuckle excaped her lips. I can’t say. If it was, I’m not afraid of it anymore. I’ve made my peace with you and I am certainly not having any regrets. Sometimes I do I wish I could round up everyone who told me you were going to be my biggest mistake. All the things that they ever said that just went in one ear and out the other side.
That sounds like regret.
Is all love lost?
Nope. Just not where I left it.
Just so you know, I wish I’d kept it.
Is that all you have to say?
Might be and it might be time for me to get on out of here.
Where’re you going?
Just on my way out. There nothing left for me to do. She pauses at the door one hand resting on the knob. You know, I’m not sure when I’ll get the chance to see you again. but I know we’ll meet somewhere again. Somewhere else. Some other time.
One day you think? I hope you’re right.
