Suddenly I remember you, alive. You were right with me, in that dark, hazy garage. We were about to go out and you said you’d take me on your bike. I thought it would be silly, so I remember making an excuse. I said we’d walk. I think you saw through it then.
The traffic that night was crazy. Your city was a madness of speeding cars through strings of golden light. I was scared. But years of nothingness melted away as you held my hand and we crossed the streets. How wonderfully simple that was, I thought. I think you thought it too. There was something, there was something between us. Something that made the night so easy.
And suddenly, this night, this night that you couldn’t see, I remember you, I remember you alive.
And now the only way out is to heap ashes on your smoldering memories, fingers crossed that they never spark again.

Honestly dear brother, there’s really nothing to be said.
Lump in throat. Vivid images.
Thanks for your comment. Hope you’ll visit my blog again and find other stuff you enjoy.
So you are gullible as well as difficult, eh? Your blog was a nice find too. But isn’t there a blogspot like button? I hate hitting the facebook like on blogs, but I did anyway 😉
