Almost Lovers #November Notes

Writing Notes: November Challenge hosted by Sarah Doughty and A Reading Writer.

In the summer, cold sheets didn’t bother me but now the chill pervades and sliding between them reminds me of you (but then most things do) because I thought you’d be here to keep me warm, your arms enfolding me, your breath, lips, hot, ardent against my neck, like August’s humid heat embracing us. The constant traffic thunders like the ocean. In its voice our summer love songs throb, the soundtrack to the sepia-toned slideshow of us: almost lovers.
