cOMinG UndoNe

You can delete a sentence that sounds wrong in a paragraph. You can untangle shoelaces that are tied wrong. You can spray-paint over that little scratch on your car. But how do you un-hug a person? How do you forget someone who has touched you this deeply, this powerfully, this intimately?

Perhaps you never do.

I spend my days looking. Sometimes frantically, sometimes deliberately. Looking for the piece of jigsaw that would fit. Looking for the pair of eyes that would meet mine. Looking for you. Because I desperately needed someone who could understand the pain of my loss.

Perhaps you never did.

Some things, when done, cannot be undone.
