I saw you today. And my breath caught. For the longest time I had lost hope of ever seeing you again.
When you vanished, my mind knew I shouldn’t dwell on it. Many had warned me this could happen between us. Forget it, I told myself. And move on. But I couldn’t. Some days I could. But on cold winter nights, I yearned for the feel of you against me.
I reached out to touch you. So many unanswered questions between us.
Where were you ? Why did you leave me? Why oh why?
What business did a missing sock have behind the bed side table I wondered, as I finally picked you up.
