I have watched the sun set in her eyes. I have seen the wind run through her hair. Both times I held my breath – unable to believe that there are other things she could reveal to me.
She held my hand tightly, while I let her rest her head on my shoulder. What other things do I need when I have her by my side? What other things would I want when I’ve seen the world because of her?
‘I wish we could stay this way’ she whispered.
My thoughts have seeped through the little gaps between us. Had I been years younger, I would have been scared. I would have ran away and locked my feelings in a box, but i’m past that. Now, I long for more things to mold themselves together. I yearn to be boundless.
I could feel her shuffling as she looks at me – probably wondering why I had been unresponsive and silent.
I kiss her lightly.
and again, I find myself slowly disappearing.
