I have never been to this place but I knew instantly where this is. I knew I have to find you.
So many boxes, so many things that people forget, so many things that people want to remember.
My vision is crystal clear though it shouldn’t be as this is not exactly real, or maybe it is: what is real?
People are lost with no idea why they’re here, but not me. I know – I felt where this is.
And there you are.
In your white uniform, thinner than I last remembered.
I don’t know how I look, if I look a lot like the me in this time or a lot different. You looked my way and had a sparkle of confusion in your eyes, ah – that answered my question.
“Hi”, I said. I long to kiss you, to rub your head the way you like it, but I don’t want to shock you.
“Hi baby, you look different”, you said reminding me of what lifetime this is.
“I am, I am from the future”. If you were another person, I would have laughed at how silly that is. But I’m with you, and I can’t help but sound sad.
You looked behind me and I turned around. There she is, the past me. Looking straight ahead, oblivious of what’s about to happen. I envy her sometimes.
“You know, we will be together”, I smiled. “Just wait for it, in a few months”, I winked.
You smirked, that smirk you only show me when you think I’m being cute but don’t want to say it. “But what about..”
“She’ll break it up first, don’t worry. In my lifetime we are all happy,” I lied.
The clock boomed so loud its deafening, yet only I can hear. “I have to go”, I touched your face. “And I will make you very happy in a few months”, I smiled as I let out a whimper. I hugged you before you could even see the tears, but you knew.
“I miss you..”, I whispered in your ear. But you’ll hurt me, babe. You’ll hurt me really bad – is what I wanted to say. But time is ticking and I could only hug you tighter as I disappear.
