It was 6 am.
A blanket of clouds hugged the crisp Seattle sky as I heard you start to wake.
It should've been a hectic morning, with us rushing to catch our flight.
But instead, you said:
just like that."
This is one of many times you remind me –
are just too sweet not to savor.
And I realized that you take these photos, not just to capture a moment,
but to preserve its aftertaste.
And it works –
Every time I see this, the memory creeps back onto my tongue.
Looking at you, looking at me. I sip you slowly.
Time suspended, in a city that knows neither of our names. You melt in my mouth.
It brings me back to your scent. Your laugh. Your breath speeding up.
And I drink you in.
I look at this photo and savor every. last. drop of that moment, thinking,
tastes so good.
More, more, more.."
