elastic heart

in a cold winter night,  even after ages, we were both free yet bound to ourselves - a relationship as estranged as summer and winter. in a not so distant past, i had gotten away with murder.

we snuggled against each other. put our arms around each other. lying in quilt drawn up to our faces ..staring at the ceiling, making patterns in our heads, counting them and then sharing with each other in our heads again.

that night we pretended to be lovers..

'There is an awful warmth about my heart like a load of immortality..'
