Holly cow, (note: I'd rather put many other words in that space) this is stunning. It definitely has the flare for shockingly painted perspective I love so much from Chelsey's usual work and I love how beautifully this collaboration enhanced the skills each of you are already so freakishly talented with.
I've read this 4 or 5 times and I'm thoroughly surprised no one else has seen it yet - then again, I don't really know how to formulate anything more to this comment because this piece has just blown me away so completely.

I love this - a seamless collaboration. I would never have guessed it was from two different authors. The second stanza does it for me, particularly the "newlyweds in Paris " bit. Lovely
I was so excited to see a new poem by Chelsey when I logged in and upon clicking it I find out it's by TWO of my favourite authors! And they certainly didn't disappoint. Adore the opening lines and the longing and yearning to break away and simply be together.
The second verse is easily my favourite. We try so hard not to take our baggage with us into a new relationship but nearly always do anyway and it's always our new partner that has to try and overcome that when they weren't the one that caused it to begin with.
I really liked the idea of dreams crashing into reality, and this whole poem is pure romance and I have no idea who wrote what as both authors mesh together so perfectly and flawlessly.
