If Just A Moment
I guess it could have been worse, I could have awoken in a room under a bright light with no legs in mass confusion, but instead I woke up with a headache from the night before, nothing more. Slowly glancing around the room I stumble upon a thought, one I thought I had buried a long time ago. One I prayed I would someday forget. It was a smile, and her eyes lit up like a field at moonlight. F*ck, I haven't had this thought in so long, even stranger, it seemed as if I missed the point. Almost like the rest of the world was moving and I was silent, standing still. Now lost in a thought so deep I had to confront it, I wondered if things could have been different. With each thought, each memory seemed to increase my curiosity, then soon my curiosity became my greatest agony. Piece by piece the puzzle became more and more complicated. The answers I thought were the truth soon became less and less dependable. But the guilt that emerges if far greater than the fact that she was broken. So much I wanted to say, but in fact, so few words were exchanged. Loosing sight of how long it's been since her voice was so lovely on the other line, and almost out of desperation, I asked myself if it was worth it, but I already know the answer to the question, she was worth far more.
