Doves-The Cedar Room (2000)
We tried…didn’t we? All of the noise fell away and we were left with nothing, a blissful nothing that seemed to be ours for what seemed like half an eternity at least. But once the veil was pulled away, reality creeping in and then all it takes is a few careless words, an action, a mistake, a choice and the spell is broken. The days pass, new routines are made, it vanishes slowly, memories drift into the ether, you even learn to forget until that day when one sound, scent or voice gets inside and forces you to remember, all of it, the good, the bad and the ugly. When the ship came in to harbour, it hit me like his/her first and last kiss. In that room we once called our own.
