People sometimes come unexpectedly into your life, and do silly things that make them impossible to let leave even when they have to. You became the lightness in my chest, the smoke I so desperately tried to inhale, and the wine that stained my lips. You became the trap door in my gut, the lump in my throat, and all the feelings I could never put into words. You became my could have been, no, my should have been. Until we meet again, I'll be waiting impatiently.
