The soft afternoon light follows the shadows waltzing across the wall, like a lover following the one who offers only a heartbreak. Curtains part before a breeze that carries the fragrance of spring flowers and something long forgotten. The music sneaks around the old furniture, whimsically scattered across the room. Two entangled bodies reflect in the large mirror at the foot of the bed, offering a splendid portrait of wasted chances. A long-case clock in the corner mocks the thieves, as the stolen time slips away.

His arms hold me tight.

This wont last.

But I don’t care about tomorrow.

    This promoted lovely images of times past. I wondered did you envisage a older couple, the use of a long case clock led me to think that you may have.

  2. This incredible piece grabbed me by the heart and made me teary, especially when I listened to the music. I couldn’t understand most of the words, yet it conjured such emotion. I stopped off for a cup of tea with a thousand things running round inside my head and this was such a treat!! Thank you!
