A look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start.
Time heals. The sunrise is constant. Salt water stings. I am worth all of it. Driving calms. Books finish (sometimes happily). The Phoebe bird will always sing. Locked doors can be unlocked. Trees produce oxygen. I produce carbon dioxide. Stars die all the time. Music will never end.
The past is over.
Did sirens steal your heart when you weren’t looking? Where’d you learn to lie the way you do?
