Horrid Purple Walls

I remember like it was yesterday.
Shadowy dusk filtered in
through the one window above our heads
Casting shadows
and your silhouette
against the horrid purple walls.
The room was tiny and square
like a little cave
sheltering us
concealing us
imprisoning us.
This is my favorite time of day to make love
-because the light is just enough
to hide my flaws
just enough to make me perfect
I remember the weight of you.
We were quiet
When suddenly you said,
“I think I’m falling in love with you.”
Stunned, I was speechless for a moment
before I stammered,
“I just might be falling in love with you too.”
It was getting darker
And the purple looked greyer now
and staring at the ceiling
my heart sunk to think that
she saw this same sight.
