I wonder what it would feel like to go. How far do you have to go until we feel like strangers all over again?
I guess I begin with acknowledging the space you’ve created. Then, I’ll run out of words to say and begin speaking in past tense.
I’ll say “I loved him” instead of “I love you.” Is that enough to lead us somewhere new? Enough to lead us to nothingness?
I don’t know but this is my white flag waving higher than all the stars I wished upon for you. This is my apology for never surrendering until now. I was stubborn but forgive me.
Now, we’re here at the ending and I’m missing the beginning. Once upon a time you were the perfect stranger.
