Crossroads

Eyes reach, meet shyly. Lips share soft words clumsily. Souls smile heartily. Advertisements

Irresistibly I am drawn to you. Dawn of another life etching before me, as your shades exposed to light imprint on live film. A new page is turned. Time unfolds, performs, acts as a complex series of chemical baths, developing, then stopping, fixing, and washing.
