‘The two stared out at the sky. Alex reminisced on what could have been, what he’d already achieved. He thought about Alice, about the lovers he abandoned, the dreams he built for himself. And as the sun kept rising, he couldn’t help but turn to Erin then. He titled his chin up, and kissed him once more, their hands still intertwined.
‘Light filled the sky, and just like that, everything faded to white.’
We fell in love within the veil. Our arms caressed our lovers, as we spoke our promises in the dark. We made our vows, and made them ours, no matter what anyone else may think. Our hearts called out to our lovers, and when Death finally comes for us, we’ll fall asleep softly, gently.
