Love conquers all,” Aphrodite promised. “Look at Helen and Paris. Did they let anything come between them?”
“Didn’t they start the Trojan War and get thousands of people killed?”
“Pfft. That’s not the point. Follow your heart.
—Rick Riordan, The Titan’s Curse
Attitudes change and feelings change.
Perspective may change.
My clothes will change and my hair will change.
The look in your eyes might change
And the way you hug or kiss may change.
But so far, the sun has continued rise, shine, and set.
The clouds drift in and out, sometimes bringing a cool mist.
Our moon touches our skin the same way, and pulls on the oceans that we hear in our minds from the first time we kissed.
Time hasn’t changed. Seconds remain seconds and minutes are still minutes. Except the times when I’m standing there in front of you and just stare. The minutes turn to hours and it’s like nothing changed.
I don’t want to go back to what we had. I want something new. And maybe with you.
