I pictured the faint outline we would make on a blank slate. We never held hands, though we knew how to hold ourselves together enough to feel it when we brushed shoulders. I began brushing by her until the canvas gave way to color. I filled in the blanks in hurried strokes, the empty places I pictured finding her in or the questions she may have been the answer to. I began painting madly on top of our undone outline with the color of cherry blossoms in full bloom falling, the act an art in itself whether she loves me or not. We were barely a sketch that I started without her. There wasn't enough to see- only the abstract impression she left behind and the inspired energy that swept my brush away as the paint ran out. I never knew what we were. I felt what we could have been.
