Heard Rod Stewart singing “Sometimes When We Touch” on radio tonight and it reminded me of you back in the days when we were really young. I overheard that you were singing this song with a few other people as a presentation to the student body in your school. I can’t remember the occasion or whom you sang it with anymore, these details have since deserted my memory.
I do remember sitting in the solitude of my tiny bedroom with the song running in my mind what must have been a thousand times over. I memorised the song and its lyrics simply because you did. It was some obscure form of comfort knowing that there was some chance that we might have been quieting singing the same song at the same time. I just wanted so much to be close to you in any way.
It summed up the muddle-headedness I was feeling. The overwhelming desire to connect and its inherent fear all rolled into a single moment.
Now, miles and miles away from you. I sing the song in my head one more time, and I want so much to just hold you.
