I met her on the subway.
It happened on a day of no significance. She was seated and napping on the train when I board. Dressed in black from head to toe, she was as inconspicuous as the New Yorkers around her.
I didn’t see her immediately as I sat down two seats to the left, across from her. It was perhaps the third or fourth stop before my gaze landed on her.
I couldn’t look away.
Fair skinned with a hint of rosy cheeks from the cold, her heart-shaped face was framed by wavy red hair tied up in a casual ponytail.
I saw myself waking up next to her on a lazy Saturday morning. She’d be sleeping on her side facing me, her legs tangled with mine. The sun would be shining through the blinds behind her, painting the room a golden shade of heaven. As I twisted to my side to face her, she’d wake. At first her eyes would remain close as she stretches her legs. Then a little sigh of contentment would escape her and she’d slowly open her eyes. I saw her eyes crinkled at the corners, saw her lips curled into a sensual smile, and saw her mouthed the words “Good morning”.
Just like that, my heart felt ready to burst with the sudden swell of yearning.
The train pulled into Rockefeller Center and I watched her wake. None the wiser and without a glance at me, she stood and alighted.
There I was, a grown man, heartbroken on a subway, on a day of no other significance.
