All I want is a peace of mind. I know you don’t owe me anything but I deserve an answer, an explanation or closure of what happened between us. Where is your decency? I genuinely thought you’re better than that.
—  Excerpts from a story I’ll never write 

It happens like this.

One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else—closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel—one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them—even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering—the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.

Though here is a word of warning—you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.

Tell me if you ever cared
             if a single thought
             for me was spared.

Tell me when you lied in bed,
             do you think of something
             I once said.

Tell me if you hurt at all,
             when someone says
             my name with yours.

It may have been long ago,
              but I would give
              the world to know.

It was a question I had worn on my lips for days - like a loose thread on my favourite sweater I couldn’t resist pulling - despite knowing it could all unravel around me.

“Do you love me?” I ask.

In your hesitation I found my answer.
