Another Chance

By: Lesley Denise Esquivel

We kept quiet what we felt for a very long time and then when we
finally told each other everything went fine. We were so happy
together, finally we could hold each other like how in our dreams
we had dreamed. Then one day everything just started slipping away.
We saw each other less and the phone calls started to end.
Everything started to change, I felt like everything I had dreamed of
started drifting away. Then finally you called and said this all
should end. Now we are no longer together, but I still like you
and with no regret. They told me you still like me too, but you're
too afraid everything will go the same way. But how will you know
unless we try again?
