Manic Monday: Lie

Mondays are MoMoLicious


It was nights like these that made her miss him more than ever. When the summer breeze gave way to its first hint of fall, gently swooshing the leaves around her-when the mosquito's were not biting and the fireflies were performing their spectacular light show right in her very back yard. Yes, she was lying to herself if she thought for one minute that she was over him.

She remembered back to their lazy days of sleeping in, nestled up against each other as if they never wanted to part. God, she loved the way he smelled in the morning-sleepy and warm, that smell had a way of wrapping its arms around her and making her feel like nothing could ever hurt her. They'd lay there for what seemed like hours, laughing and kissing and when they knew it was time to get up they'd move to the couch, entwining themselves in a way that only the two of them would fit.
a
They'd read and nap for the rest of the day, each traveling to their own secret world yet never once breaking free of their bond.
But there was no use for remembering. Remembering only brought her to the realization that they would no longer share those moments. He was long gone now, and nothing but the smell of his skin on her pillow remained.
a
What is it about these summer nights that always bring back the remembering?

I have to agree with Claire on this one - lovely and yet sad.

Hope you feel better soon with that strep throat of yours. Good thing you're not in school anymore, isn't it??

Now go lie down and rest!
