not the band,
something a lot better
I remember a time, not too long ago as I can still remember it very well, when two young people moved with each other in unison. Despite being on opposite coasts, a three hour time difference, and opposite schedules; they were still one.
It wasn't the first time I noticed it with this person, but for whatever reason, August clearly showed on a day-to-day basis our togetherness. Though many miles apart we would always be thinking of each other at the same time; and no that's not just some whimsical 'in love' comment, what happened in August (and noticed from then on) painted a different picture for what we really were.
The most significant evidence was displayed late in the night/early morning, after both of us had said our goodnights and fallen asleep. Something, in those hours would wake one, then the other...and since we were awake we couldn't help but think of one another, and so a text would be sent; just as the other was thinking of/composing their own to send. This happened more oft than not, a majority of the days in the week. And it wasn't the same time every night. And it wasn't the same person to send the message first. No. It was always different, always changing, except the fact that they were one; they were connected in some way.
That time in my life will always stick out to me for the sheer fact coincidence can be ruled out. And even though that was years ago, and both parties have drifted apart, nothing has been able to break that connection to this day...
Now you're probably saying to yourself, "oh come on, you can't be serious...." and you're entitled to that opinion..and you know how I love my conspiracy theories and over-analyze things and just dig and dig, but hear me out...
As I mention, those parties have drifted apart it's been too long since real contact was made - an actual conversation - but something of course has sparked my attention. Even though we haven't stayed in touch, or are connected through any sort of social media forums, every now-and-then she crosses my mind. (I think it to be perfectly natural as someone that was apart of your life for any significant time would as well) It may happen in the middle of the day, it may come up in conversation, it may be because she co-starred in a dream...whatever the case may be, she has been manifested.
I continue about my day, thinking nothing is out of the ordinary, until...one of the various scenarios happens. Maybe I'll get an email about my blog, and it has the hit reports...and then that's when I'll see (what I strongly believe to be) she has visited my blog on that day, or so, from when I was thinking about her. Or maybe for whatever reason I'll sign off the computer and log into my phone...I'll see a snapchat sent the day I was thinking about her. Or maybe, if I'm really into self-deprivation, I'll take a look at some random social media she has and notice a picture change on the day I was thinking about her.
I mean, I'll be honest and say, I'm not constantly creeping on or checking these things out. These are not daily occurrences. These happen every once in awhile, and at first, I took little notice..maybe chalked it up to happenstance, like calling heads on a coin-flip and getting it right. But as these instances happened more and more, what I would have called serendipity, now would have that level bumped up.
You may still call it whatever you will, but I know where I stand. And let me testify that this is not some sort of love 'death rattle', a post where I bleed my heart onto the screen, pining for a love that is no longer...in hopes of getting back together with the undertones of 'we were meant to be'. No. While I state and stand by being connected with someone special, this is not a pity cry. I do think we still have a connection, yes. I do think about her, yes. I do miss her, yes. Those are just facts, to me.
I just wanted to share this with you. Facts or coincidence, either way I'm alright ma.
"when coincidence is common place, it is no longer coincidence..."
