His eyes were intense, full of adventure and desire. He could penetrate her walls with a single look. His body was strong and powerful. His heart was aching as he sat next to her unable to express how he felt. His ache grew stronger as he lost himself in her touch, knowing he would not have her…then. He was young and immature, lacking the ability to express how she made him feel…and paid the price. He would be forced to say good-bye not knowing if they would ever cross paths again. Their time together was fleeting, but enough to embed an unfinished feel about it deep inside both their subconscious minds. Maybe, just maybe the Universe would align itself once again, allowing them a serendipitous moment that both their romantic minds would recognize and understand more clearly.
She was captivated by his deep intense gaze that forced her to look away. She had never had a man look at her with such powerful intent. He frightened her. Her heart wanted to take a leap of faith but didn’t know how. Her entire body vibrated with feelings she had never experienced before. Intense passionate love was new to her. Desires of uncontrollable lust were years away. She had no past to recall upon, she had only just begun her journey into exploring her mind as a hopeless romantic. She had not been taught how to grab onto her feeling with both hands and savour them slowly. She had not yet become the woman who was able to share her intimate thoughts with a man who had such a powerful presence. She was scared, unable to take the risk of exposing her inner truth of how he made her feel. She wanted to be with him…but didn’t know how. She had years of growing and unfolding to do before she could comfortably take on his challenge, risking it all.
She captured his look in a photograph that she revisited now and then, each time it brought back powerful unfinished feelings and questions of why they had connected so many years ago. He was a memory deep inside her youthful past that had been put behind her…until now.
