I step out of the car, my toes sinking in the cool sand.
The breeze is on my skin, and the dunes are forming waves before me.
You come from behind and envelope me, you warm me, and you lift me up.
I look out into the distance, seeing nothing but the sand, miles ahead in a world of you and me.
I look into your eyes reflecting the moon, it’s more enticing than looking at it up in the sky.
The crackle of the fire you started in the background and the flames bouncing off your face make the vastness feel so small, so familiar.
No one else exists, no one else matters, time is flying but it’s at a complete standstill.
I curl my fingers with yours, they fill every crevice like they were made just for me, the invisible string between us tying into a knot.
Every little thing makes me feel more whole. I didn’t know I was searching or what I was looking for, but now it all makes sense.
