How could you forget?

Nothing was visible beyond the shine of your steel expression, while you deeply examined my lips in the dark. The whole world revolved in a destructive pace as the minutes died all around us. We were stone, fixed on our visage, our bond, our loyalty; our love was marked savagely by the words that dismembered all other emotion within me. You spoke past my external imperfection; you spoke to the child that was held alone inside of me. I pierced the air with a single question.

“Will you never forget me?”

Your eyes diverted from mine, the answer was slowed with doubt. I should have known that our bond was misplaced. Our eyes met again, the shine in your eyes grew stronger along with a slight smirk that made me weak and blessed.

“No. Never…”

Quickly, your smirk splashed into a grin and you broke eye contact with me, lowering your head in a shy shame. My hand met your cheek and your face met my eyes again. Passion raged within the seconds our eyes fervently attacked one another. I put my hand down.

“Will you?”

Stunned and dazed, I meekly responded “Never.”

I can never forget what you did to me.

“Never” Echoes forever inside of me. My love, my little Sinclair.
