NaPoWriMo day 23: Larger than us

A memory:

His dry, pale cheeks burn

as smile begins to peek,

chain of glowing pearls

overshadows incoming dawn.

Her porcelain skin aches,

in sweet and soft pain, electrified,

under his fingers, tied.

 

Now: they are just two strangers

each sleeping on his side of the bed.

She wonders…,

yet she knew the answer:

“Life, larger than us,

that’s what happened”.
