the box

There in a closet, in the darkest corner I hid the box. I hid it proper so that even I would forget about the box. “The box”! Yes, the box with all your pictures – you smiling, your side face, you with your favorite glasses, you with that funny disgusting hat (sorry I said I lost it but I dumped it for your good :P), you with your face covered with your hand, you enjoying the majestic view at Mustang, you with your mouth stuffed with chicken, you drinking tea in that mug I love so much, you this and you that!

If only I had loved you slow, I wouldn’t have to hide that box in the dark. I loved you more than much all at once, scared there would be no next minute with you. I loved you in hurry, missed you even when I was with you , staring at your eyes, I missed you more when you were right in front of me. Even when you would be sitting right in front of me, I could see you slowly disappearing, slowly but disappearing. I felt you and I disappearing in the pitch darkness, the blackness of that lovely evening finally hid us both like I hid that box.

“The box”! Do you know what is strange? The box! The box with your pictures captured in it. I guess that box is haunted by your memories. Sometimes, only sometimes the soul of those pictures rises from rest, passes through the thick walls of the box and sneaks out of the closet; it dances in my room, those picture souls… like they are moving to the slow song we used to dance together. Then they find me, circling me round and round singing in the voice only I can hear. Those picture souls then stop right in front of my eyes; they make me see you – you smiling, your side face, you with your favourite glasses, you with that funny disgusting hat(sorry again for that), you with your face covered with your hand, you enjoying the majestic view at Mustang, you with your mouth stuffed with chicken, you drinking tea in that mug I love so much, you this and you that.

My eyes sees nothing but my heart remembers them all, each picture souls grip my heart tight and my eyes cry instead.
