We sat beside each other
Staring at the excited fire
The smell of the sea
The cry of the old crows.
We sat and breathed in unison
As waves crushed against the reefs
As the fishermen let out their boats
We linked fingers and watched the stars.
And a snaked slithered by quick
And the fire was burning out
We were getting drowsy
While the moon floated further east
While the stars dimmed and faded out
You turned and touched my face
I wiped the wetness under your eye
The night was running out
Your voice was shaky
I didn’t dare speak.
(haven’t decided on the last line yet.)

Note: I saw a cute boy, looking like a model without even trying, wished he was my bro.
