‘You’re with me, but

your mind is somewhere else,

isn’t it?’ Partly confused by her question,

he asks her to elaborate. ‘I don’t think I need to.

Truth is that no one really belongs to one another or

owes each other a thing.’ Placing a ring on the table, she

gets up from the chair and continues, ‘sometimes we

forget and, I want to thank you for reminding

me. At the end of the day, we’re

only temporary.’

  8. No one ever belongs to us, people just pass by our lives, leaving good and bad things… I feel we just have to love each other and enjoy love while we can. Maybe, one day, we can find someone who will be by our side for a very long time, but that person is never ours either.
    I loved this piece, by the way.
