I have come to visit this small town you once lived in. I walked the same cobblestones that you once trod on.  I am standing on those hill tops in the mist you spoke of. I have felt it as smoke in my throat. The air I now exhale was the air you once breathed in. But this is not love; it is nowhere close to it. Love was the time when I put my ear to the flagstones listening for your footfall.
