"Let's stop this pretending" she whispered between wine-flavored kisses that stained my lips with hers, sharp fingernails marking my arms with crescent moon memories of forgotten, faded nights.

Her eyes engraving themselves in the cement of my mind, terrified, empty globes that pierce the fragments of sky that filter through the closed blinds.

And I know, and she knows, we're hiding, always hiding.

We've only ever belonged in the dark gaps of stairways and the lonely, empty space left on library bookshelves,

but with grasping, clawing fingers, we tried.

God, we tried.
Written for prompt 28 of :icon100themechallenge: sorrow

Not really based on sorrow, but I think it's a sorrowful piece of prosetry. Eh, whatev. :)

Trying means everything

It is sorrowful that both being gave something all they had and all it amounted to was hiding in empty stairways and musty book shelves. :(

It's rare that a piece will leave me speechless, but you have accomplished such with this. The feeling is bestows upon me is more complex..... at least to me, than anything I usually read.

Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad that it left you speechless and bestowed some sort of feeling.
