“We smile at each other everyday but we’ve never taken the time to introduce ourselves. Hi,I’m Sean“…. “Hi, Kara” : )
To know the dream you once held dear, far from grasping,disintegrated without a trace, bearing the indents of memories caressed on the outline of the inbetween. Neither here nor there, trapped amidst the ashes. To be eternally damned to a life of melancholia, concealing the true nature of your actions thus avoiding the fray.
I was having a smoke outside the gates, stress tattooed across my face, when this rather beefy guy came up to me..a real butterball. “do you mind if I hung out here for a bit?”. Of course I didn’t, I could have honestly used the company to rejuvenate. I started throwing my whole day to this guy…complete word vomit.
My biology notes were balancing on three different traffic cones at this point, my eyes scanning the pages, accelerating as time passed, to absorb every bit of information I could. This guy abruptly closes my book midway through my attempt at memorizing the Central Dogma and says “free your mind..”. and I was thinking…wtf is this guy goin on about…my test is in about 10 minutes… and iv got that much time to finish that last chapter.
“Think of it as a black page…information that you will never use after today.” He was right and if he hadn’t closed that book id probably go into cardiac arrest from the anxiety. I looked at my phone.. 2.40pm. 5 minutes till doomsday. “Im sorry iv gotta run. Test starts in 5”, and pretty much flew through the gates. As I was about to diffuse into the crowd I heard him shout “Just so you know, I don’t think of you as a black page”. For some reason it made me smile(not those minute smiles,im talkin bout those massive dumbass smiles that can be spotted from miles away).. knowing I was someone worth remembering.
Its weird how the slightest gesture could cause a shift in someones universe.
