Microstories: Voyage

It was only a kiss
at the doorstep
A taste of summer,
sweet
In the sudden stillness.


We left all we knew,
our fates forever
entwined.

So entangled
we drifted,
our eyes
beheld
infinity,
twinkling
spheres of gas,
the moon
deathly white.

  3. Man, you're good with endings. I really like how this turns sour. There is such a thing as being too close.
