Chance hearts (Part 1)

I turn a corner and I see a flash of someone else. Black jacket and confident gait. Is that you, I wonder. Have I been searching far away and all the while you have been here, within reach?

I run through the crowd, looking for you now. But then I remember how for years I’ve searched, just hoping for another glance at your beaming face. Looked everywhere, every minute for those twinkling eyes, haunting and beckoning in my sleep. You could not possibly be here. And my heart shatters again.

To be continued…
