I called her in the morning and she didn't answer.
I sent her an SMS and she didn't reply.
And when I finally got her to answer her phone, she said she didn't feel like talking, and hanged up.
I spent all day watching the rain, while listening to the same part of a song:
Oh God, but under the weight of life
Things seem, so much brighter on the other side
And as I was about to go to sleep, feeling awfully bad, my phone rang.
And it was her.
She said her ex-boyfriend had called her.
I stayed silent.
She also said that she had realized she didn't want to spend another day without talking with me.
And as much as I regret saying it over the phone, the only words that finally came out of my mouth, and out of my soul if I have one, were:
I love you. And I hanged up. I just couldn't hear what came next. I had finally said it. And the world didn't end.
Not yet at least.
It always seems like it's the best people that leave.
A lovely girl has left the blogging world.
I'll miss you Sher.
I'll keep hoping you change your mind some day.
Some of us have left and returned.
Others never do.
