Unanswered Questions



Do you remember my fingertips as they caressed your skin? Or the bite of my nails down your back? How about the brush of my lips against yours? Or when I gripped the back of your neck and threaded my fingers into your hair for a deeper taste? What about the nights we told stories, and laughed until dawn? Or the promises you made of forever? After all these nights sitting in silence, do you ever think about all we had, and everything we lost? Have you ever thought, just once, that maybe, I was the one that got away?

  1. This is a really compelling piece to read, mostly because of its brevity. For a relatively small number of words, you’ve managed to pack in an amazing range of feeling and depth. I’m the kind of person who will always write 12 words when 3 will do, so it is always fascinating to find writers who can achieve so much with such economy of words. Really great piece.
