Do you smell it? Can you feel it?
I lie in bed. Naked with my towel around me. Protected, yet vulnerable. I snuggle into the duck feather duvet. A luxury of light weight fit around me.
The softness a stark reminder of yesterdays carefree days. I close my eyes a little tighter to hold the precious emotion just a second longer. I see you *smile* and I feel the wind in my hair. Happiness washes over me. It soon disappears.
The darkness hangs heavy in the air. No light can dance brightness, no sunshine brings a new day.
A saddened soul, an emotion manifests inside, uncomfortably catching you unaware.
I take a deep breathe. Do not open your eyes. Keep the faith. Exhale with expectation. Nothing.
Can you feel it? Do you smell it? Don’t.
