4 4. Omnipresen
Her digital molecules I'd seen
it seemed to me that was enough.
How much time had it been
how far behind was all that stuff?
Nice were the memories it brought
though I didn't start to reminisce.
Not like the ones you may have thought
but still refused to all dismiss.
Then things begun to just get funny
one, then another, all in a row.
Was it because it was so sunny
my head received a sudden blow?
I stopped the car at the red light
gazing ahead, my mind clear.
And there she passes dressed in white
it's really her walking so near?
It looked like her only a bit
I realized in the end.
I had to finally admit
hard still the why to comprehend.
Next day again one of the same
how can it be, she's at the till?
But soon-enough clear it became
it wasn't her, I paid my bill.
Whole days passed without mirages
but I was thinking of her more.
There were no images, collages
nothing to think or to deplore.
But at the moment the most weird
it happened once again anew.
She suddenly had reappeared
apparently we weren't through.
In a cafe I sit and read
it's her again in plain sight.
A short question at top speed
she asks to just borrow my light.
This time around there was no doubt
this girl was nothing like she was.
Looks like again I had lucked-out
it was the time for a pause.
Dude, you keep seeing her around
is there a reason for all this?
Was there a meaning more profound
said to myself, about the miss.
There was one way to move ahead
a really pleasant one in fact.
A common action, widespread
a thing concrete and not abstract.
A quick hello I sent to her
a smile contained in a brief note.
And back in touch we quickly were
in a fun way...yet still, remote.
Get the most out of this story
The image of a past romantic encounter comes to a young man's mind initiating a series of profound thoughts which are followed by a cascade of powerful emotions.
This resurfacing of his feelings for a young woman is proven to be intense and he is soon overcome with a desire to search for the photos of her's he had kept, along with messages they had previously exchanged. The further he dives into the past, the more vivid his recollection of her appears to become. He remembers exactly how she was when they met for the first time, where she had revealed her inner self to him, where he had observed the real her, for the very first time.
In the days that follow he begins seeing her everywhere; his mind playing tricks on him. A few days later, he can no longer stand it, he locates her coordinates/contact details and he gets back in touch with her. She responds with joy. Even though she is living far away from him now, he is happy that they've re-found each other and can be in contact, once again.
Both of them know it was inevitable that they'd get back to being in touch.
