I saw it coming and still couldn't get out of the way.
I told Keith, I thought I was better than that.
He said, No, we're not.
I saw the signs and explained them away. Or ignored them. Or wallowed in them.
I'm not sure.
But Keith ...
I wonder if I felt compelled to leave Idaho and go to Kansas City to find Keith. I was compelled by something. And I found Keith, rather easily.
Maybe I was looking for someone I knew would understand and support me and be willing to walk with me to the ER late at night when all other options seemed exhausted. That's really all you can ask for in a partner.
