He stares out into the northern sky

It is opaque with cloud.  There is moisture in the slight breeze.

It is almost midsummer.

On this quiet night with only his thoughts and a bottle of red wine for company, he has unexpectedly found peace. The storm that raged inside him has abated.  His passion is spent, his longing subsided, his sense of loss has diminished.  A sadness lingers – it has left its mark around his eyes – but it is no more than a last sigh for beauty unattainable.

If this were a movie he would shrug, shake his head almost imperceptibly and smile a little ruefully to himself.

If he smoked he would take one long, last, tip-glowing drag then drop the ruined cigarette to the floor, crushing it beneath his boot.

If there was justice there would be someone to take his hand in theirs.

If he were a better man he would call home.

The spell is broken. He has at last let go. It is over.

Somewhere beyond the rain there are countless stars in a velvet sky.

They are shining like diamonds.

    I am smitten with Him
    and utterly infatuated.
    No matter what I tell
    myself, my heart says
    thing and my brain
    says another. I cannot
    stay away regardless of
    the distance.

      Smiles. You only know his words. Not the man. But thank you

        I know it’s not real. I just like the
        way your words make me feel.
        Even if it only last for a moment.

    This has a huge sense of relief within it… A good place to be.
