Mosquitoes nip on my legs, but let them feast on our entwined limbs. The scrapes on my knees sting, throbbing like our beating hearts. Security patrols the grounds, envying us, for our moment, with hopes burning brighter than the stars. Inevitabilities may haunt us, but close your sad eyes and calm your anxious heart. My love for you stays, even when I’m not around, to be your open field in a cruel city, your starry night in dark times. So you won’t forget, which I fear someday you will, let me remind you with a kiss.
Thoughts on value and the things we treasure.
