I first saw Patricia while we were in grade school. She never knew I existed.

We had several classes together in high school. She never knew I existed.

We were placed alphabetically at opposite ends of the tables at the prom. She never knew I existed.

She went off to college and got married; I went off to war and got messed up. She never knew I existed.

Her husband cheated and beat her until they divorced. I looked out my window, alone. She never knew I existed.

While moving back home she died; tired and alone. I was not able to attend the funeral. She never knew I existed.

Yes, I could write a story but it hurts too much so I must stop.

Nice! Love the parallel structures. Are you a songwriter? This is very song-like.

Nope, just posing as a guy who thinks he can.

Fake it til you make it. Astounding economy. Jealous.

What of life save for a chance encounter of two paths that lay forever entwined yet out of sync.

Nicely done.

Thanks for the comment.
I am giving some thought to actually writing a whole story. I will have to "fictionalize" an ending. As odd as it may seem; it is for real.
