The days slide away.
They hold on
They hang on to each other as best they can. They clutch at hope like shipwrecked sailors cling to familiar fragments of their broken ship. They imagine land as paradise as every wave rises and falls.
They whisper promises. They paint possibilities. Yet they try to be gentle in their expectations.
They hold back their desire in dams of denial. They numb their needs. They leash their longing. They suppress their sexual sighs in sad silence.
They want it so badly.
But the uncertain days, the empty nights, the fading light, and the hole in the middle of everything, is weakening their grip.
They know that, at any moment, one of them might give up,
And let go.
They know it will hurt. but they don’t know how much.
The days slide past
They hold on.
