Eli’s Confession

25 Oct

I said your name aloud today.

After weeks and months and years.

It stumbled out stiltedly, the awkward syllables elbowing each other in an upward bound elevator; and as it floated away into the ether, I stared after it like I would a stranger, barely able to recognize the word I had once passionately moaned.

    D: Words become people. At least on the planet I inhabit. 🙂

    Aunty G: From 5 lines to 5 words… oh what I have reduced you to. 😦

    Nino’s Mum: Glad you think so.

    Neha: Thanks.
