I broke a rule.
I got caught up in the daydreams.. that they became real as you did last night.
Sometime around midnight, after days and days.
“If we asked someone around us how long they think we’ve known each other, do you think any of them would get it right?”
He asked so many questions. Like a child, forever eager to find out more. His mind, a sponge. Her eyes but a window to a soul far deeper than anyone (not even her) would ever really know.
They spoke in another language. In so many words and then.. the silence. Perhaps that is what the lesson of the moment is.. to covet those moments of not knowing. For if you only listen to the wind and the sea rushing to the shore, you will learn every secret the world has to offer.
It takes but a milisecond for change to grace.
He came into my existence like a hawk.
That I may be his prey.
He’d sent me a message earlier.
A half dozen letters were written back and forth.
A galla of texts to proceed thereafter.
They cherished this world of written words not to be belittled in the sterile composition of serifed format.
Their minds raced to be together. And for moments encased in time they were with nary a care in the world to overcome them.
Moments of acceptance.
Of perfection and completion with their imperfections.
“Why did you do that in there?” I asked him about that first kiss.
He said “It was just a kiss.”
But in their eyes.. and in that silent still she knew it couldn’t be true. Or it shouldn’t be true.
He looked at her and said “Some things do not need answers.”
Perhaps the answers were already there right in front of them as the rest of the world blurred.
For three days I was graced by this phantom.
Three unbelievable days.
And one withstanding night.
“You remind me of someone I can’t remember.”
Yes indeed sir. Yes indeed. And I will always remember you. Forever this way, regardless what happens… I will greet thine encore with open arms if ye ever choose to return.
