she called me about a relationship that ended 2.5 years ago.
she couldn’t believe that something about that relationship could still trigger feelings inside her, after so long. she is still looking for answers to a question that can never be answered.
we were driving together in the night, and he sighed and told me he hadn’t slept much the night before. he said he had taken a five minute nap, and during the nap had one of those intensely vivid dreams. he said he dreamed only of their hands, his hand holding hers. and when he woke up she was not there, and he felt intensely sad.
somehow he knew it was her hand he was holding.
