(This is the beginning of my new series, Unpublished Whispers, which I’m going to start where I publish the snippets of books I’ve started and never finished, and likely never will. They will all be short and sweet, for the aim of expressing the main themes I adore writing I hope you enjoy!)
The Distance Between Us
Your eyes glistened in the darkness. A perfectly blue, wide-eyed gaze, all iris and no pupil.
I was watching you and you were watching the ceiling. This was in perfect symmetry with our love, the awed and the distant. Yet now, I watch only the future.
