It could happen in an instant when your life changes. One moment you are a regular person holding down a regular job to pay the rent, keep the car insured, food in the fridge, all the mundane activity of living a life, trying to get by. Then someone you haven’t noticed steps along side and says, “I love you.” The sky falls, the sea parts, and the thin veil over your eyes disappears revealing the bones of the earth and the marrow of the sea. The tide becomes your breath, rushing forward and receding under the impellation of a dark moon. And the worst of it is this: he speaks the truth, and you will never be the same again.
