The wind blew at the trees. The
sand from nearby parks covered the sidewalk. I walked through the
leaves and sand, the sun beaming down on me. I'm walking with
James, we've been together for two years but from an outsiders
point of view we look like complete strangers. He walks a few
feet ahead of me, hands in his pocket, his dark brown hair flying
in the wind.
"James, I have a question."
I waited for him to slow down and listen but he kept walking as if he didn't hear me.
"Can you hear me?"
He turned and walked back to me.
"Look, I don't love you ok?"
For the next two weeks we didn't talk or even look at each other. We just went on with life as if nothing happened.
Its funny how we try SO hard..and then in the blink of an eye, in the pain of an instant, its all gone. But then again...Maybe its not funny at all.
