the kiss was tender, and nothing more. not assuming, not asking, not wanting or desiring. it was just a kiss.
their arms held me tenderly. they didn't need me, or strangle me. they didn't hold me distastefully. they just did.
i held their body against mine, our breaths echoing together, our hearts resounding together, our melodies entwined.
this was what i had been waiting for, and time was nothing.
