Today, I remembered what it was like to love you. The peace that would settle over me like a thin veil, protecting me from the thoughts that plagued me. The smoothness of your skin and how I would trail my fingers over your chest and down your arms. The smell that held relief mixed with reminders that I wasn’t alone. In that 30 seconds I remembered why I wanted us to make it work. You were the smell of fresh baked cookies wafting through an open window on a summer day after a long day of work. And when you let go, reality reminded me of everything else.
