PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

i lay asleep on the bus today, dreaming of an island where women chose to love women and the distant crashing waves nearly drowned out the sound of your voice, a maiden practicing her lyre on the adjacent wall. we were eternal, darling, never fading. i hope you know that. we've spoken late into the night, they felt like whispers over the ocean, under greek marble, lost in a sunflower field, morning kisses grazing sleepy eyelids under the rising italian sun. i buy a bouquet of roses and fling them into the ocean, hoping they'll find their way to you.

    I’ve always been a sucker for anything that mentions marble in even the slightest romantic sense., so of course, I now love this. That last line is so *good* And then you also went and said they were eternal so I was even more drawn in. I love the feel of this piece so much.
