SLUR- Love, Is It Real?

She slurs, intoxicated with fear. Yearning for that one thing between them both…a connection. She hopes that he will make the first gesture to connect, that way she knows he loves her…that it’s real.

He slurs, intoxicated with fear. Yearning for that one thing between them both…a connection. He ponders, he hopes that she will make the first gesture to connect, that way he knows that she loves him, that it’s real.

Both slurring, causing a silence of their true emotions, causing a disconnect. All they need is one thing… that connection.

Both slurring, they fail to realize they both are speaking the same, but somehow disconnect is still the hindering cause…fear is the hindering cause.

Somehow, digging deep, finding a hint of courage, they come face to face, they grab hold of one another’s hands, locking eyes, finally…

They are able to understand one another… no longer slurring from fear; realize they’ve been speaking the same.

She knows it’s real… He knows it’s real…

Finally…a connection.
