Iris
 
Adam is standing in the dark by a dimly lighted lamp post outside of a house and he is looking up at all of the windows that seem dark and vacant. He sighs softly to himself as he can feel the cold approaching around him. He pulls his dark long coat tighter around his body and waits. He looks up rather sad as he can feel the first signs of snow come down. He really hates this kind of weather. It isn’t hardly fall and yet there is already the presence of snow. He shakes his head in wonderment but then he looks up at the front door and all his blues about the weather seem to melt away. There approaching him, wearing a powder blue sweater with a light scarf around her neck, is the woman that he is just so in love with. But this love is forbidden. They are doomed to never be because of circumstances. So they love each other from afar and as friends. But if you were to ever see these two together, you would swear that they were more then friends and deeply in love with each other. As he watches her tug nervously on her multicolored scarf, his heart seems to warm and the weather seems to change again to the warmth of a mid summer. She comes up to him and looks at him with sad eyes that seem glossy. It seems that this is a goodbye. She starts to say something but it only comes out in a harsh catchy breath so she wraps her arms around his neck and holds him instead. He closes his eyes as he snakes his arms around her and returns her hug. As they melt into each other and the warmth that they have there, Adam bends his head down to softly whisper these words.
 
“And I'd give up forever to touch you,
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow.
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be,
And I don't want to go home right now.”
 
Sighs softly as he looks at her and then cups her face in his hands and kisses her very softly and then pulls back slightly so they are only a hair breath away from each other.
 
“And all I can taste is this moment,
and all I can breathe is your life.”
 
Closes his eyes and looks down. 
 
“'Cause sooner or later it's over,
I just don't want to miss you tonight.”
 
Takes her hands in his and holds them, rubbing his thumb there softly.
 
“And I don't want the world to see me,
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.”
 
She starts to cry now as she looks up at him with her big green eyes and his own eyes get glossy as well. He takes his thumb and softly wipes that single tear away that has fallen on her rose hewed cheek
 
“And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming,
or the moment of truth in your lies.”
 
Takes her hand in his again and brings them up to his parted lips and blows on them softly to keep them warm. She is trembling slightly but a part of him knows that it isn’t just because of the cold that is approaching. 
 
“When everything feels like the movies,
yeah you bleed just to know you're alive.”
 
Continues to hold her hands and looks at her with this softness there as they look at each other with this sort of soft longing for each other and that they don’t want this to be the ending but really the beginning. 
 
“And I don't want the world to see me,
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.”
 
She looks at him with a soft grin as if she knows what he must do and she puts her hand on his cheek and strokes it softly. He looks at her with deep green eyes and goes to say something to her but she stops him by putting her finger on his lips. She can’t help but run her fingers along the smooth soft texture of his lips as he parts her lips to her as his head tilts back. She presses even closer to him and draws his face back down with her finger and then replaces that finger with her lips. It is a very soft kiss but just its actions alone speak louder then any words. Their love for each other can be felt in this one kiss and they both wish that it would forever go on. He wraps his arms around her torso and brings her closer still. She then breaks from the kiss and says softly 
 
“I love you”
 
This is where Adam almost breaks down. He hugs her to him tightly and rests his head in her shoulder trying to make sense of it all.  They stay suspended in that sort of love and want and need for each other until he pulls back from her 
 
“And I don't want the world to see me,
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand.
When everything's made to be broken,
I just want you to know who I am.”
 
He looks at her one more time as his heart just aches as he can see her tears slipping down her face. He backs away now further, his hand still holding hers. 
 
“I just want you to know who I am.”
 
She looks at him and she doesn’t move. She knows that he must go and that she must let him go. This time he lets go of her hand and starts to walk away backwards. He wants her face to e the last image that he sees.
 
“I just want you to know who I am.”
 
And with this, he turns his whole body and looks down as he starts to walk away from her. She watches another person leave her. Another person is abandoning her. Another one is gone. He continues to walk away and softly says to himself with hope in his voice. 
 
“I just want you to know who I am.”
