On a crisp spring evening.
We talked without words, a glass of wine in our hand.
Getting lost in each other’s eyes before the midnight clock called us back to School night reality.
Before saying goodbye.
Across a continent.
Hugging by a baggage claim.
Despite the rainy Sunday nights and the missed Halloween parties.
Wind in our hairs, holding onto each other, looking at the waves.
Kissing by a Christmas tree.
Laughing, Exhausted after sleepless nights.
When words were not allowed.
When the pain from a broken body felt like a mental relief.
When even looking at each other, little cogs in a machine, felt forbidden.
Limping under the burden of a painful memory.
