Vignette: Secret

She didn’t want to move even though she knew better.

Only he knew that even if she tried, he wouldn’t let her.

Both feigned caution.

Spooning shadows in filtered streetlights

Breathing slowly in unison, speaking of responsibility and “right timing” …

Appearing to tempt Fate on the surface,

All the while hoping that Destiny

Would have Her way…

Drifting off to worlds where unspoken wishes

Always come true.
