Five Minute Friday - left

Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on left.

I was in a hurry, walking so quickly that people were apologizing to me for being in my way.
I was in a hurry, but I felt awful that strangers felt that way.

And then I turned the corner and I swore, I saw you. You stopped me in my tracks.
I thought we were about to be face to face, for the first time "since".
But my eyes played a trick on me, it was not you...a total stranger was in front of me wondering why I was lingering on their face.

Honestly, what is there left to say?
What would I have said?
What is there left for us to say to one another?

We're both "sorry". We're both sad. We're both left wondering...what in the hell happened?
The truth is, it's easier on the rest of them, but you and I, it was just different.

It always was different...from the very beginning. The connection was different. The realization was different. The understanding of why and how, it was all different.
But, was is there left to say?

Other than I miss you so much I dream of you.
And to this day, you continue to Affect me from afar.
And I'm so angry you let this all happen on our watch.
And I'm so sorry I let this happen on our watch.

If that moment comes, when it is just us, face to face, eye to eye, nowhere left to run...I'll do exactly what happened today with a complete stranger.
