her story

we had all day together.
seven hours of just talking.
that's a lotta time for two people
who have never spent any alone time
together except on the phone.

i figured we could always fall back
on distractions. a movie, a game, a walk....

we just talked.

and i asked her her story. tell me about
your life. where you've been.

and i found out things i never knew.
boxes i had her in blew apart.

when will i learn?
boxes never work on people.
you cannot put them in boxes.

and everyone has a story.
a really amazing story.

i've known her for 32 years.
guess it was about time i asked.

and now i'm many stories
have i missed?
