"I love you."

There are moments in time when I wish my life was a movie. Sometimes I would fast-forward past the scary parts, but mostly I would pause, rewind, and press play so that I could see that look in her eyes again as she slowly backs away from me, taking a sharp intake of breath before saying I love you for the first time. I would relive her fingers slipping from mine before she pushes off into the stream of pedestrians on Lexington Avenue, back turning but her scent lingering.

Unlike the mind, the scene would never degrade. And then I would play the moment all over again.
