There’s that song again. The one I always skip when it comes on. You think you know the song, but it’s not the one you’re thinking of. It’s “Music for Love” you remember that one? Mario sings it. Yeah, I don’t listen to it. The beginning flashes me to an appropriately  locked memory. It was one seemingly insignificant moment when pooled with the rest of the time. I was straightening my hair when the song came on and that’s when I heard you. You began to sing and if I remember correctly, it was such a struggle to get you to sing for me.

I moved to the bed and sat down. Just to listen. You couldn’t see me, the wall of the hotel separated us, but I could hear you. You. For the moment. My very own earth angel.
