in the yellow of those memories, I am watching you cook tamagoyaki. 
through the screen, I look at you warmly. you are such a dear friend. 
your hair curls and bounces, and I like the silhouette of your face. 
the friendship I didn't deserve. the tenderness of it. the effortless 
laughs, the solace of knowing you. years later, even as we quietly 
morph into lovers, we never forget the softness of the tamago days.

 
for the dearest of friends, and the dearest of lovers.

    Okay so like

    the simplicity of the language but the deadly intent of it. wow that got me. warmth/tenderness/softness. perhaps alluding to the malleable nature of the relationship?? and the last two lines wrecked me by the way

    The soft, gentle edges??? The delicate, almost ethereal descriptions??? The ending???? Utterly breathtaking.
