Shadows of Yellow and Red danced across a pale blue sky.
Music I swore I'd heard once, but couldn't recall where.
A calming realization, soothing my body... like sleeping on a rainy Sunday morning.
Mesmerizing in the same way I look at the night sky, and you look at me.
It was like a dream, the ones you swear are real.
Where you feel every sensation heightened, and it sends your mind reeling into another time and place.
Maybe that's where we were, when I saw you take my hand.
A red shadow pulled me so closely that my Yellow faded fast.
Yellow into Red.
Me into you.
This feeling of calm, like I'd never felt peace before.
So I sat and I watched...
Thinking I'd finally let our souls meet.
How wrong was I to find that this dance was not a first.
But one of a thousand lifetimes, memories, and loves.
This wasn't the first verse they'd spent, casting shadows.
For our souls were old friends who kept secrets without us.
