•{ The Evening Transition . . .

The sun was slowly giving way to the moon. City lights began to glow and a mist crept into the air. For him, this was the perfect time of day. It was this scene that he planned for his date to witness – even if she didn’t know it yet.

He was leaning against his balcony railing when he heard the doorbell.

“Right on schedule,” he said as he opened the door.

Her smile caused him to smile and she took a few steps inside. “I haven’t been to your place before,” she said, and the way he saw her eyes glancing over things he assumed she was cataloging his items.

“Don’t worry,” he assured her, “we won’t be here long.” He placed a hand on her elbow and ushered her towards the balcony. “There’s something I want to show you.”

A sarcastic remark played on her lips but was quickly forgotten once she stepped outside. The air was cool – but not too cold – and the din of the city below was soft. The air felt different. His apartment was on the 30th floor.

She moved away from him and took in the scene. “Everything looks peaceful from up here,” she remarked.

“Something like this only happens once a day,” he said, coming up behind her. “During that time I let go of any worries from the day as I watch the sky transition into Night.”

She looked thoughtful. Having known him to be insightful from time to time, she also knew that what he said often carried other meanings. She slowly asked, “What are you getting rid of today?”

He was quiet for a moment then raised his arm up to drape it around her. “Everything I don’t need.”

•{ Weekend Plans . . .

Everything was set for the weekend getaway. Both of them have had a grueling week. She didn’t know about him, but she needed this time away like a person needed air. A few nights ago he told her that they were going to ‘run away’. It was the most wonderful thing she had heard all week. The only thing was – she wasn’t told what to bring or where they were going.

He knew how she felt about surprises.

The day of the trip bag was delivered to her door along with instructions. Bring yourself and this bag. The problem was, there wasn’t anything in the bag but flowers, a bottle, and a box of candy.

He was planning something. But what?

•{ Rain and Gold . . .

When it’s said and done
I already felt love
And I let it end up
End up dying by itself
And when it’s said and done
You were better off
You deserve real love
And I deserve to be by myself
‘Cause I’ve gone too far
And I started too young
To give up
And even if I changed
It would be too late
I exposed my ways . . .

•{ Winter Thoughts . . .

I don’t know about anybody else but I’m exhausted. I mean that in possibly every meaning of the word. January has been one big rollercoaster of a ride for me in the Real World and the fun isn’t over yet. (I mean that sarcastically.)

When things get overwhelming I tend to withdraw. I need the quiet and peace to work myself back to a sensible state of mind so I can function normally instead of an auto-pilot automaton. I know we all struggle with something, whether it be big or small. It’s my hope that when you’re in that situation, that you can find the time to get away and pull yourself back together too.

•{ Like I Care . . .

Sometimes you really want to care. Whether it’s about what is going on around you, or in the lives of others, or even about what will happen based on your decisions. You want to care because in your mind you know it’s important. However, try as you might, you can’t.

So you fake it. You know all the moves: how to smile on cue and all the quips to make so you appear authentic. Deep down you know the truth and that is you really don’t care.

•{ Don’t Think About You . . .

Things had been going well. It took some time but now she felt that she finally got her life back on track. Removed some people from her life and had started over from the bottom. When everything is working out, that’s when life tosses in a wrench. The phone rang. Without checking to see who it was she answered, “Hello?”

“Did you forget about me?”

The voice on the other end was unexpected. Her whole body clenched and she felt her heart start to beat faster as anxiety started to creep over her. She looked at the phone. His number was blocked so he had called from a new one.

“Oh, you tore me to pieces
Turned my strength into weakness…”

Her shock lasted only a moment before she was able to reply. “You must be bored and lonely. I’m hanging up now.” Amidst his pleads on the other end for her to hear him out she hung up.

“I feel freedom where I stand now
And I feel proud from who I am now
Yeah, I learned a lot along the way
I love the woman that I became . . .”

Before she put her phone away she labeled the number. If he called again from that number she would be prepared.

The day progressed normally and whenever her phone rang again she checked the number before answering. He didn’t call back. She wondered if some part of her did want him to call. It was crazy. Insane. It took her forever to get past what had happened between so there was no way she would want him around again. Right? Right.

The phone rang again as she was getting ready for bed. She thought about letting it go to voicemail, but she reached over and got it. She knew it was him even before she looked at the ID.

She answered the call.

“I’ve changed,” said the voice. “Think about it.” That was all they were able to get out before she hung up and tossed the phone to the side.

Letting out a deep exhale she laid across her sheets. “I don’t think about you . . .”
