And in that moment, it was only her. The screech of halting trains, heels clicking on the ground at various speeds; the sound of thousands of jumbled conversations lost in their own adventures. It all seemed to drown within her beauty. I was fearful of my obvious intrigue, as my heart was pounding out my chest so much it nearly reached out to her. I collect myself and ask her name. “Anne,” she responds. I invited her to lunch, to which she politely declined. We were heading opposite directions to either side of town, with her train departing shortly. But as I looked into her eyes, I couldn’t help but feel an overwhelming feeling that I should tag along. My throat dried up as she said her goodbyes, and turned to walk away. I stood in shock, my mind racing at a million miles an hour, envisioning the millions of possibilities and unlimited outcomes. All of which I’ve lost out on. Now, whenever I find myself at that train station, I return to that same pillar which she found me on, maybe hoping she’d come back. My years of youth are long gone and I’ve never taken a wife. And every now and then do I find a woman who I wish to take as mine; yet none of them could match her sweet vanilla scent.
