I left at 11. Got home at 11:20. My fastest walk. Im not sure why I walked home so fast. Guess seeing the pictures of you that day made me think that you were at home waiting for me. Like I had finished my term, my duty, my service and I was coming back home to be with you again. I stood outside the door to catch my breath. As my heart was pounding, my mind was racing.
IÂ would just go upstair, drop my things on the floor, quietly change my jeans and lay down in the bed beside you. Behind you, watching you sleep so peacefully. I would take my hand and gently place it on your shoulder, kiss the back of your neck and hold you. Wisper "I'm home" as I glide my hand down your arm wrapping it around you. You roll back towards me to give me a smile "Hi baby, your home." Your soft heavenly voice brings a smile to my face. I kiss you on the sholder and you give a soft laughing smile. "Time for nu' night baby" as you roll back around. I kiss your sholder again, wrap my arms and legs around you, and hold on to you tight. And as I lie there watching you sleep, I hear myself turn the key in the door. As the key turns, my world returns, the image fades and I realize you're no longer here. You were never here, it was all just a thought. A happy future glance ... that yet left me feeling so sad. And as I walked up the stairs, dropped my things on the floor, I looked at the apartment. There is no you. I lied down on the couch, holding myself, letting the painful tears leave a trail of sadness down my cheeks. I miss you so much...."
