We saw a movie. We were supposed to see a movie. After months apart. Remember that?
We watched and we said we could pretend. Pretend to be happy, pretend to be together, pretend that no time has lapsed and no hurt had been… Cut so deep.
We pretended. And then we cried. Because pretending was never going to ever be good enough. No time should have ever lapsed. No hurt ever caused. We just cried and fell in love and cried again. Everything came rushing back.
I was drowning and you saved me.
And then, just like that, you were gone.
Two years later, I’m still drowning.
