A - Alive

This is my second year in April A-to-Z Challenge and as usual I am a bundle of excitement and nervousness. Last year, I took the herculean task of putting up two posts a day. I wrote haiku for the theme section and random posts and poetry for non-themed part.
This year, my theme is 'Conversations'. Real, fictional or even a mix of both. So here we go for the first day. The word for the day is 'Alive'

She:
You need to stop living in the past. She is not coming back. What both of you had in the relationship is not getting recreated again.

He:
I know. I know she isn’t. But I just can't believe that something of this sort happened to my relationship. I never knew life could take this nasty turn.

She:
It's okay. That’s what life is and shit happens. It’s been more than two years now. You need to gather yourself and start living your life again.

He:
I will. Try. May be.  

She:
Oh come on! You are behaving stupid. Tell me; were you dead before she came into your life?

He:
No, but I was most 'alive' when she was around.
