Long before our love died

She said she saw me a couple of times in the years in between. Walking through a crowd of people. Always by myself. Always enclosed into my own thoughts. She liked that about me. I never asked, but I think It was because I seemed safe. Back than, I may have seemed pure to her. I was the kind of man who wouldn’t go around looking for trouble with other women. I was the kind of man that she could have all for herself. But I never asked. So, it probably wasn’t true. Or, even if it was, it was most likely a thought that quickly evaporated once I became her’s; and then I became just one of the many potentially unfaithful men. Who was it again that said that some people die a thousand deaths out of fear before they actually leave this world? So too our love: it died a thousand times, long before it came to an end.
