Following the music

Who would have thought I’d fall for him so completely, yet feel so distant. To see him in a church and leave smitten. That we’d meet in yet another place, far from home, spend an intimate night together and then have to leave again. Between you and me, I have a confession to make. Advertisements

Reflection
