Divided

You know I’m yours, right?

She paused and looked at him shakily.

He took in a long breath.

He was hers too, but.

It isn’t time.

Her shoulders dropped.

Each lifetime they do this dance.

I know. It isn’t time.

He looked her over.

His heart divided.

Her heart divided too.

A tear rolled down her cheek.

He stepped toward her to dry it.

She stepped back and turned away.

Promise, don’t go too far?

I’m right here.

She pointed to her heart.

Always.
