The story behind the poem
I was very close to a colleague. He inspired me to be
free. Part of me loved him. When he started dating a new girl, it
wasn't easy for me but I was so happy for him because he was elated.
This poem is about an evening when I was leaving work and I ran into
him returning to work. It was frigidly cold and dark outside, but
his aura warmed me while we shared a moment in the street. We stood
face to face listening to "Like you'll never see me again" by Alicia
Keyes, not saying a word. We stood there for the duration of the
song. When it was over I replaced his ear-bud in his ear, we
embraced and we went in our separate directions.
Now we don't even speak.
