Loop

It really threw me for a loop seeing you like I did. And it’s so peculiar, even after thirty years, how the bone structure of a face, it never changes, and how recognizable it is; all the lines and angles I had grown so accustomed to, even the intensity of your stare, and for a moment, it felt as though we were both 15 and 16 again, and that nothing had ever changed, and that time had never taken either of us anywhere.  And I never thought I’d say this, not in a million years. Never thought for a second, that I would see you again and out of all places here. And never thought that all those feelings that took me so long to forget, and to bury, would come flooding back and all at once as memories – of you.
