~While chatting with my girlfriend the other day ( about Kay as usual)—she unexpectedly muses:
“You and Kay were sooooo different, yet the same.”
“Really, how so?” I ask.
…she was something like, um, let me think for a sec, yeah, like Brooke White & you’re a bit like Joan Jett.”
I didn’t hesitate for a second.
I got it.
“YES!” I declare loudly…scaring the shit out of her.
I mean, she summed up our unique personalities exquisitely.
Kay was similar to a sweet country singer: satiny, soft spoken,… sort of like a “wafting whisper.”
Well, I’m more rock & roll… opinionated ( I’ve been told often), a bit too loud …sort of like a rush of something right in your face.
You could say we balanced one another out.
We became the perfect person together.
The ideal woman.
She was Everything to me.
Kay helped me polish up my rough edges.
And I helped her realize that a bit tarnish was Okay.
And I keep pondering…
Pondering fucking pondering
How do I become whole without her?
How do I find myself again without her?
