Today, Part 5

Today was a rush of lukewarm, cold, and comfortable–a pleasurable mix of love, life, and work.  Today my song dimmed to a hum, but the melody remained.  I smiled, and I meant it.  You laughed.  We sat in warm silence together, the two of us, separate and joined.  I saw your light, and it made me feel new again.

Today, Part 4

Today, I lived so vividly the memories still bounce wordlessly from cell to cell, laughing, dancing, yelling for my attention.  Today, my heart thrummed happily in my chest, each beat reminding me why I love this world and everyone in it so very much.  Today, there was no time for nostalgia or regret–only peace.  Peace and laughter.

I loved today.

Today, Part 2

Today, memory called me back to the start.  Your face called to me like it hadn’t before, and suddenly it all came rushing back–the laughter, the flights, the bliss, and how quickly we learned to forget about each other.  You went your way, and I went mine.  On days like this I wonder at the existence of “meant to be” and quietly put the past to rest.

You’re not here for me to think about anymore.  Not today.
