She regarded the stars as a type of divine entity. It was as if for her, the stars were a part of the physical body of God.
However, she was now living in the center of the city, very far from the place with the clean sky that she was used to, so when looking at the sky at night everything she saw looked like dense red or gray smoke, as usually is in large cities.
Our relationship have been different, half empty for some time. We were young, we didn't know how to deal with distance, and even if we if was old persons I believe it would be difficult from same way.
I woke up that day, and it looked like it was going to be another normal day in life's crushing routine. But when I woke up, the first thing I saw was her message on my cell phone:
'' I dreamed of you tonight, in the dream I saw the body of the milky way, and you were beside me, holding my hand. I felt like our love was part of the sky we admired, was wonderful, alive. You know what that means, don't you? I lost my God but I can still find him when I am with you, when I dream of you. ''
After I read it, I did what anyone would do in my place, if loved someone and that person was miles and miles and distance away: I started to cry.
