Lost in Time
I sit on the bed next to Carrie and felt her forehead.She was still burning up."You're cute when you're worried," she muttered. "Youreyebrows get all scrunched together."Just rest now, dont talk. Just sleep, so can feel better.Carrie buried her head my shoulder, and I told her, Justclose your eyes.And that was when it happened. Carrie wrapped herarms around me, pressed her head harder against myshoulder and closed her eyes. I looked at her, andtouched her face. She opened her eyes, raised her headtowards mine, and before we knew what we weredoing, we were kissing.They say you have memory of pain, and this proves it.They say we only remember the fact that somethingcauses painfire burns, knives cutbut wereincapable of remembering the pain itself. Thats whyafter trauma of childbirth, women are ready to havebaby again a year later. Thats why I guess, we fall inlove again. Thats why in this place, at this moment, Iwas kissing the woman I once loved, a new womanwhom I might fall in love again. I had forgotten all thepain of the past. I only knew that her lips were soft, thather body was warm, and her lips were searching mine. Ididnt want this moment to stop.
