shared silence.


they walked side by side, her arm slipped awkwardly through his, the quiet transporting them to separate worlds.

overhead streetlights pulsed quickly--continuously, illuminating each of the thousand unanswered questions.

and it was there, amidst the questions and the silence and the faint glow of uncertainty, that she first wondered whether to silently un-slip her arm--to stop moving--to stand still and watch as the slow world's current quietly carried him away.

but she continued on. in an effort to match the unnatural cadence--to find a silence they could share.

I'm thinking about unslipping my arm...

You describe perfectly those first moments of getting to know each other. The first time you hold hands or he puts his arm around you - it's a new feeling, both wonderful and alien. I love to linger in those moments - such a gift of our humanity!

Beautiful. Reading this sort of twisted my gut because I could so relate. You capture real life moments so beautifully.
