Memories

I thought about you this afternoon, 
Just as I usually do when my mind wonders into the past.

I think I saw your face
And I might have heard your voice,
But I know for sure I lived your story.
The story you wrote about my life,
You know it, you've told it many times I'm sure.
It was normal, just like every time I thought about it.

The only difference this time, was that my mind jumped from frame to frame,
Without feeling. 
I played out each scene sometimes more than twice
Trying to search for something deeper than a still in which I stared at you and you looked beyond me.
But there was nothing.
I felt nothing.
On the canvas of my heart I felt, saw and heard 
nothing.
It was empty.

I think the phone rang.
 I snapped out of it.
But the questions remained, 
“Why?”
“Was it real?”
“Did I care?”

I don’t have the answers, 
And I don’t think I need them right now.
For now, I'm happy to let my mind wonder back to you
And feel nothing.
