Do you remember, that time we spent in the rain? You were leaning over, all hushed whispers We ate mochi for the first time, and I laughed when you took a bite The look on your face was priceless It's been so long We really should catch up Eventually...
Arms out, hands extend -A welcome gesture; kindness, Are you this person?
I heard his keys in the lock The slow metallic clank Tumbler falling forward & Let's just be frank It's four in the morning And you've only just arrived Something's amiss Is all we surmise
Dark hallway Flickering lights Footsteps on tile Creaking door swings open Echoing breath Locking the universe behind you Safe in solitude
Her meows incessant, Following from room to room; Quiet in my lap.
