Even if it was for just 1 second, the brightness of your smile the warmth of your laughter,
and that bright, deep twinkle in your eyes. It doesnt matter if i can retrospectively rationalise it and diminish it.
Because i know the truth – and that is at that moment i could feel the authenticity and joy,
the plainess of my feelings, the connection in that moment – and it was real. I am real.
