a few days ago, i got caught.

i was having one of those ” maybe i really just don’t belong ” days.

and just when i thought no one was looking for real and i could wallow in my own self pity,

i saw a face i haven’t seen in a few years.

i remember sitting on the bench looking out at the sea, wondering.

i didn’t want to move, i just wanted to sit there and become the bench.

just ease slowly into it and become a cold iron and wood bench.

maybe i would get lost in my sari.

wrapping it around me, my eyes caught a glimpse of the pink in the fabric.

maybe i could become a speck of pink and live there on my sari and float with the wind.

but none of those things happened.

andrew saw me and came over and i just hugged him and cried.

i saw so sad.

and so happy that i didn’t have to fade away at that moment.

it was okay that i was there and that i wasn’t happy.

someone was listening and they sent andrew to remind me.

andrew took a photo of what he saw.

i was so embarrassed.

and then again i wasn’t.

i was free.

  7. Caught this site completely by chance and decided to read. It may take me a couple of goes but there is something in this that stopped me. Like a little sensor going off at the back of my mind. Thank you for providing me with a moment to stop and, well.. just stop.
