At the corner like bolt of fate, you take a left turn to walk out of my life forever. In order to seal the coffin, within a week, you send a text marked, “never again.” The email - your attempt at an obituary - arrives shortly afterward. I read all eleven pages. Today you call long distance and inform me you have to come just once more to finally get me out of your dreams, I wonder what she will think of you?
