Yours And Mine

“It was perfect.
Because I was with you.
And you were with me.”

I watched your silhouette through a backdrop of flickering flame. Through the crackling, popping, and undulating of shadows, I couldn’t help but be caught by it. Like I was spellbound, captivated and not a care in the world could stop me from reveling in that moment. It was perfect. Because I was with you. And you were with me. Despite that darkened silence, I knew I was home.

  1. I love the imagery in this one. I can see him standing next to a fireplace. There are no other lights in the room. She’s sitting/lying on the couch just watching him and admiring him.

    “It was perfect. Because I was with you. And you were with me.” I love the pure and simple contentment in this line. Just so lovely!
