Sometimes a lover and a stranger are the same

The Stranger

Once I ran across a stranger who asked for a love story. He asked about the time I knew I loved him. 
I asked, who? He said I knew. I said I know.

I had one breath to decide which moment I wanted to explain. 
Then the stranger asked instead about the time I said I loved him. 
I asked, who? 
He said I knew
. I said I know.

I explained how I knew I had one breath to decide which moment I was going to take.

Before answering I thought about how held in my hand, head and heart was a “Dear God I think I love you”
 I thought about how dripping from my mouth ended up being a “Dear God I’m sorry”.

I finally replied to the stranger with an “I never could”.

He said, he knows.
