"Leaving is the hardest thing" she said once, "and I've always hated happy endings".
didn't expect her to say goodbye, she left me a burgundy lipstick kiss
on the chin, a pack of white roses and a handwritten note on her
perfumed pillow. I won't tell you what was in it because it would reveal
things about her that I don't want anyone else to know. She reminded me
of the seaside, the cold sand and the sudden rush when her little doll
hand first slid into mine.
When I close my eyes now I see her moving seamlessly to Nouvelle Vague's Dance With Me,
her snake skin heels kicked off and left behind like a nightmare. She's
the only girl I've ever known that looks taller in her bare feet.
