Rating - PG
I know you are talking, but I don't hear a thing you say. You could be speaking of death and destruction... but your voice is so low and warm, even anguish sounds beautiful.
And it is anguish, isn't it? In you and inside of me, showing its face when we least expect it and then running back to the shadows again.
I can feel God judging me, but not for all those other reasons. Not for the reasons that I think he would be... but for lying in the wake of love.
Natalia turns her head, ever so slightly. She can barely admit to herself the longing for her cheek to touch Olivia's hand.
So, she doesn't admit. She just moves slowly.
And her eyes have a life of their own.
They seek and they find. They find Olivia, bent and focused on the clasp of some necklace. They find Olivia, eyes full of pain and desperation. They find Olivia, in love.
I love you, too. I think you know this. I think that we know all of this.
And you could be talking about this gift around my neck, but your voice is so low and so warm...
And I know you are talking about us.
Every conversation we have is about us.
