Structural Integrity

Once upon a time we spent whatever waking available hours with each other. We discovered each other’s bodies, brains, enjoyed intimacy and discussions, hiked and played like grown children.

Now he uses tweezers to build tiny intricate buildings, carefully gluing structures, painting facades, creating a miniature world complete with lights and moving water while never realizing how the structure that was us erodes a little more each day.
