“I guess that’s what saying good-bye is always like–like jumping off an edge. The worst part is making the choice to do it. Once you’re in the air, there’s nothing you can do but let go.” Lauren Oliver,  Before I Fall 

And just like that ... he left.  The deep honey brown eyes trying their best to get a read on me - and it took all of me to stay sane, stay dry-eyed - a hint of trickle threatening to ruin the veneer. 

I turn and I fled - shut that door. Something garrotes everything in me and I can barely manage to blink.  

Curled inside a love-made blanket with my feet tucked in I can feel my breath catch in my ribs.  I’m always close to tears, this week. 

The time is both luxury and limitation. 
I want all of it, this glorious mess called life and love. 

Do I dare dream?
