the road below us, the city beckoning close behind, our laughter leaping out of our mouths and tumbling into the blackness of the night — electric, and innocent, and alive. looking over and wondering about the rarity of you & me, you & me and our somehow understanding without words, you & me spilling our broken souls wondering if it would ever be too much (it never was).
you & me, strangers just three days ago. you look back at me, all pale blue eyes and goodness and a smile i have already learned to love — yes, love. i had discovered the lightness of your soul and i loved it, had felt its warmth melting everything all over and through the dripping fragments you had touched me without touching and i was terrified. trembling and feeling that you might understand all of me if i let you, tearing down the walls so fast, so suddenly, to let you see mine. praying that you would love it, too. the road below us melting away, the city disappearing with the world, and you & me, just passing through it all.
