"Our Love: wonderful and everlasting."
We’d said this often: atop mountains, supermarket aisles, between cotton sheets, in kiddies playparks. Our Love: beyond description.

Senses - overloaded to breaking point:
obsession, eroticism, immaculate tranquility; Together, always Together.

We soared, Charlotte and I, soared in our passion and our rest, one smile away from bliss, one touch away from passion. One look would inflame, one word would inspire.
And one sentence destroy.

Her words: “I have to go away.”
She had no choice. “For Nicky.”
I saw pain overwhelm us. I saw two children, lost.
Her words: “But please don’t let me go.”

    I agree with Chloe. I'm sure that we can all relate to these powerful feelings that you so skillfully write about, Drew.

    Thank you both. Chloe, I hope your present reality improves to match or better your memories. Horrorshow, thank you so much, that's such a generous thing to say.
    I have to say this site is so supportive and inspiring and the overall standard of drabbles is so high it makes you have to work and hone your stuff before putting it up. Thanks Drablr, thanks everyone :)
