I wanted to understand what he meant. He pointed to the mountain range confidently, like he knew what our destiny was. He did know. He was ready for me and I was ready for him.

He turned to me and looked me deep in my green eyes.

“Let me reintroduce myself as a man with a cause.” He said.

I smiled.

He moved closer to me and continued to undress me, slowly, carefully, with his fingers and his love. He removed my shorts and tossed them to the side. I felt his chest press into me as he gently pushed me to soft brown dirt. He was above me and I was beneath him. I looked into his deep blue eyes as they turned to grey. I could feel him inside me, pressing into me.

“Do you know how much I want you?” He asked

“How much?” I asked.

“More than I can express. More than you will ever know. I need you, I crave you, I breathe you.” I said.

I looked into his eyes and breathed him in. We were one. We were together and nothing and no one could break that. The universe was right. It listened and it knew that we were meant to be together. The stars were above us and the earth was beneath us and that day his soul laid inside me. Everything was right.

I closed my eyes and let us be one together.

When it was over, we lay together, him and I, looking at the stars. I wrapped myself in his arms. He was entirely mine and I was entirely his and it all made sense. We made sense together, like a grammatically correct sentence. The punctuation was right, the syntax was correct, the letters touched each other correctly just like we did. He traced the outline of my face with his hand, which automatically made me smile.

“I love you.” I said.

“And I love you.” He replied without hesitation.

I moved closer to him. Our naked bodies were entwined. I put my head on his chest and breathed him in. I wanted to remember his smell forever. I wanted to take that smell and put it inside me. I wanted to be that smell. It was so much a part of me. Our sentence would make more and more sense as it grew. Words strung together to become longer bigger blocks of text.

My eyelids became heavier and heavier as I slowly fell into a deep comfortable sleep on my love’s chest.
