Some months go by so fast. August wasn't one of those. I always thought of August as the hot-as-hell month, and it lived up to that. Even though his existence became known six months before, thirty-two days ago we had only exchanged a few sentences of polite neighborly banter having no knowledge of each other's lives. In one month I learned all I needed to know to love him completely and know he was my soul mate. The problem was that I had already found and married the love of my life. Each day of August was a journey and a struggle to learn things about myself and reconnect with the loyalty, love and passion that was meant to lift me from the fog.
