They looked familiar

December 4, 2021

They looked familiar. Something about the way they were smiling and holding hands. How they leaned into each other as they walked.

So plainly in love.

I followed them trying to put my finger on it.

Trying to remember where I met them. Where I knew them from.

They separated hands. He put his arm around her shoulder, she wrapped hers around his waist. Their pace slowed.

They laughed.

And then it hit me.

I used to be him.

    This could be quite ambiguous, Michael! Are you watching yourself in a parallel reality or are you watching a past love with a new boyfriend? An intriguing write 🙂

    I’m glad you went that way, Michael. I used to be him, too. 🙂 Well done.

    As they say, hindsight is a wonderful thing but foresight is better. I’m guessing he didn’t appreciate what he had until that moment. Nice one.
