...they stood silent in the sea of people. The crowded streets of New York gave the approaching New Year a reason to shine all year long. Strings of confetti showered the raised smiles and hands that held out together in peace. Couples stood silent together, especially the two in the corner, away from the busy animals. They fed on the love of each other, not kissing but telling each other secrets and stories of desired lives. They watched each otherís eyes, waiting for the stroke of midnight. In the background, over the romantic music that blankets the alleyway, people shouted their favorite countdown. The passionate lovers blinked and the crowds erupted in joyous cheers. Men grabbed their women and planted delicious kisses on their reason for existence. In the alleyway, the two stood silent but continued to long in each otherís eyes. While everyone chased their meal with unspeakable speed, the two hidden in the shadow stalked each other with cornered passion. They tilted their heads at each other, finding the one spot that they wanted most. They lunged at each other in a slow-motion battle of beauty between beasts. Their passionate growls and hisses echoed the corners of the alleyway. The crowd never noticed them in the corner of the world, but once every while one stranger did. They acknowledged but never asked why. Everyone was in love and this was the start of the New Year. The men grabbed their women and kissed for their existence. The women grabbed their men and held them for all their worth. Everyone grabbed the New Year by the shoulders and planted a permanent kiss that should last throughout the year.
