like a forest

i meet him and felt complete

for seven hundred thirty days

i felt alive

and loved.welcomed

we wasted time,

long talks on the phone,

everything was...perfect

time became scarce, talks became short, we never meet at the end of the line

i began to love myself first

life began a little brighter
