THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 34

Haze

All through Monday,
I waited to see him again.
My heart felt encapsulated
in a haze of joy,
thinking that he might say something
about our chance meeting.
Possibilities popped up in my head:
conversations he might start…
conversations I might start…
Maybe he would acknowledge
that he had missed me
during my absence.
My hopes were dashed.
He walked straight past me in the hall,
his gaze glancing off into the distance.
My vocal cords became paralyzed,
unable to utter even the first syllable
of his name.
Was it my joyful haze
that had rendered me invisible
to his eyes?
