It was 2 am and she was awake again having drifted off only hours before, the night young and she so tired of the struggle. Thoughts racing, her mind a torrent of ideas, what ifs, why cant’s and more.
Where was he now? On the other side of forever lying awake, his mind also a runaway thief stealing his ability to remember anything but the race.
She dreamed in hues more vivid than Technicolor, her mind like a broken and haunted projector playing for her a movie of what was, what could have been flashing images through her mind never ceasing, never losing momentum like a wind up toy from hell pulling her back from blissful darkness to sit hollow eyed and staring; destined to remember all he could not, yet powerless to remind him.
It was 2 am and she was awake again.
