Arguing in the Dark

be held in the dark.
With the light out you must
judge the other’s emotions
by touch and the pace of their breath.
One becomes less concerned with conquest
trying to sense smiles or tears in the dark.


for the Trifecta Writing Challenge
use the word ‘light in 33-333 words,
third definition of course. 
The form is an Etheree.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
