|I feelt like writing about a moment. so here it is.|
There we stood in the center of the parking lot of the restaurant we both worked at. All the other employees had headed out by now. A light flurry of snow had begun to fall lazily down to the earth. The new born flakes of sparkling wonder rested in her amber curls, shimmering beneath the dim lamps that illuminated the dark lot. Her hands found my own and there we stood in silence our eyes locked in a lovers quarrel. The wind picked up sending a gust of icy air that whipped around us. She shuddered and stepped in closer to embrace me, mostly for the sake of warmth I think. Silently I thanked god it felt so good to have her in my arms. Her heart beat rapidly against me and I fought off the urge to cry. “I love you.” I whispered letting the warmth of my breath tease her freezing ear. “I know.” She responded with a sigh. “I love you too.” The swell of her stomach pressed against me, reminding of the unborn child that grew inside. Again I bit my lip to hold back tears. It was his child that she carried not my own. Regret washed over me in that instance. Slowly but surly the feeling faded back to acceptance once more. It was nice to pretend things had never changed if only just for the moment. A blanket of sparkling snow coated everything around us. Our cars sat side by side warming up for the trip home. I would go plop down on the couch with my forty ounce and watch late night cartoons until the sun peeked its sleepy head across the horizon. While she would crawl into bed next to her new man and do only god knows what. I cringed at the thought. Slowly she pulled away from me to look into my eyes. “What are you thinking?” she said. “Just remembering.” I replied forcing a weak smile. Her brown eyes flashed with curiosity. “Remembering what?” she inquired returning her head to rest upon my shoulder. I let the silence hang on the air for just a moment. “How it used to be.” I whispered from another world. “Oh.” She said still clinging to me. We stood holding each other for what seemed like an eternity. Our hearts beating in rhythm, or breath rising and falling in sync. My eyes tightly closed I prayed for it to never end. Silver dollars swirled from the dark abyss over head. “We should go now.” She said looking up towards the sky. Nodding I agreed. Before turning to leave she pressed her mouth to mine. I accepted the warmth of her kiss letting it carry me away. “I love you.” She said once more tears glistening in her upturned stare. “I love you more.” I whispered as she walked away. A hot stream of my own tears finally got the best of me. I tried my best to blink them away. It didn't matter now though she was already driving away. Tweet
