About a month ago she met me at work. She waited so that we could go to dinner afterwards.
We didn’t do anything fancy. Just a simple evening with great conversation.
That was my favorite thing about her. I could talk with her for hours on end and never tire of her voice.
After dinner, we went back to my office to pick up her car. We took my normal route home from work.
About half way to my office, we came to an intersection at Snowy Hollow Road and Route 169. I stopped at the sign and jumped out of my car. I ran back to her car. She looked very concerned and asked me, “What’s wrong?”
I replied “Absolutely nothing. Everything is perfect.” Then I kissed her.
I kissed her like it was the last thing I would ever do.
She looked surprised. Floored is a better description.
Later that evening, she told me that was the sweetest, most romantic thing any man had ever done for her.
She told me how much she loved me and asked me to make love to her.
How do you go from that moment- one month ago- to this, being apart, without any explanation?
I would do anything to see that look in her eyes again.
To see how much she loved me. I would die for that feeling again.
Just one more time.

How do you go from feeling like this person is your entire world, to….. nothing?
