A Night With Her

A text, a cigarette, and a meeting on an empty balcony.

The night is cold, dark, and empty.

The moon is perched above a single barely visible cloud, accompanied by no more than a few glistening stars. The wind rustles through the trees outside my apartment window mimicking the sound of waves rummaging in the deep, dark sea.
