Matching wounds

In the middle of nowhere

The sky inked midnight blue

Deep in the dark

Crickets chirping

Break the silence of the night

I wake up

My head’s on his shoulder

First surprise, then recall

Finally recognition dawns

I touch my face

Thoughts whisper to me-

Is this real?

What happened?

Where are we?

Who is out there?

He looks me in the eye

Answering my unspoken thoughts

“Don’t worry dear

Together we’ll figure out the mysteries of this life”
