Secrets

Just before I fell for V, I concocted this plan. I would travel the world and play chess in cafes and bars. I’d pick up beautiful women at the end of the day and make love to them far into the night.

I cannot do it now, for I must have every precious moment I can with V. After she leaves me though, I will make that trip. I will need a strong balm for my heart.

I’ll send postcards to V during my travels. I’ll write subtle words that let her know that I still love her and care for her. Her picture will sit beside the postcards when I write them.

When I return, I will write a novel about my trip. The novel will contain secrets only V and I know. On days when her heart is heavy, she’ll open that novel and read for a spell. Her heart will grow lighter.
