Time seems to weigh more heavily as hours drag into days. A simple glance at the clock proves only five minutes have passed, although it feels as if a year has slipped by. I cannot help but fidget, my thoughts racing in my mind, pounding out my normal desires. Nervously I twist my hair around my fingers and chew lightly on the ends.
Disgusted with myself, I walk away, distracting myself within the pages of a book. It is no use, my thoughts drift back to you, my love, my darling. A soft smile lifts the frown that had settled on my face. Your voice tickles my memories and I know my eyes sparkle with merriment. I brush the locks from my eyes, remembering the way your gentle hands caressed my face.
I sigh happily no longer fighting the trail of my own thoughts. It no longer frightens me to think that without you, I am not complete.
