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.
