remember the time
when the ice from our hearts
melted away for each other
and they were full of life?

remember the time
we lay under the stars
but all we saw was
each other’s eyes?

remember the time
we wrapped ourselves in blankets
our breath tangling together,
the house awash with light?

remember the time
the wind howled over us
and we became so accustomed to it
that the hurricane became our favorite song?

remember the time
we loved each other through
the seasons, disasters, chaos,
before we began to love the chaos more?

—  rain came pouring down
