At first it’s new. It’s exciting. It’s surprising. You can’t help but smile unintentionally. At first it’s clear. It’s shiny. Not a blemish in the world could conceal your joy. At first it’s kind words. It’s soft gestures. A hug for absolutely no reason, just because you care.
At first it’s countless hours on the phone. A special text when you least expect it. A note to brighten your day. Then it all begins to slow down. It’s at a standstill. You become confused, resentful, absentminded. Perhaps it was too good to be true? Perhaps it was a fling? Perhaps this is just the way it’s suppose to be? Now you wait for a special holiday to receive the affection you once recieved just for being you. Is it fading? Will it be rekindled? You only hope so before the fog comes in and overtakes you both, and you are no longer a part of each others world… just a distant memory. AK
