I walked into the meeting, paused for a moment scanning the room to locate an empty seat.
A voice said, “Hey you.” I felt his tone; glanced down in front of me; saw the look in his eyes. I felt one of the four brick walls surrounding my heart crash to the ground…the smoke made my weak.
He moved his briefcase from the seat next to him motioning for me to sit next to him.
I exhaled as I sat back; relaxing into this feeling of complete ease.
He put his arm around me drawing me closer to him. Almost whispering in my ear, “I love your hair.”
The chemistry strong undeniable–the ease of the conversation that followed.
Our exchange of glances; eyes sparkling; getting lost in his grand piano smile.
Exchanges of calls and texts. Such laughter sharing life moments.
I woke one morning remembering those that I have been forced to love from a long distance.
The brick wall suddenly built back now surrounded with a moat.
