Something i read

My hips swaying against yours. Your arms wrapped around me tightly,  As if to never let go. Even for just a little while, It was as if we had known each other forever. I put my hand over yours As we swayed in time. Your head resting on my shoulder.  We do not love each other. But in that moment it was as if we cou
