I told her I was deeply saddened about life and death, and the next life…
Her eyes opened wide like terrified wings.
“This life is not enough,” I said to her, “and the next life, it won’t be enough either.”
Her nails dug into the black sea of my bed, she was trying to swim, to understand.
“You see, my love for you is so infinite, so boundless … there … there will never be enough time for us.”
Her tears fell on my favorite pillow, she was drowning as I was, she understood.
