it was our first time together..
i knew you were leaving the next day to go back home..
why did home have to be so very far away?
'there's room for you there' you whispered to me, as my heart burst with joy from your words.
how can a person feel such extreme happiness and sadness at the very same time, my mind wondered and screamed. and yet, that was exactly how i felt.
i watched you dress…every nuance of you embedded in my mind..
on the bedside table, i saw you reach for your scent..the same one that was tangled up in the bedsheets hours before..
and when you went to the next room for one moment..
i glanced the name of that cologne..
and did you ever know that i wore that scent every day..until we saw one another again….
