Nous étions nus, allongés sur ton lit à profiter de l’instant présent. Je ne savais pas encore que ce serait notre dernière fois "ensemble". On avait pris un instant pour créer une image mentale de ce moment que nous voulions à jamais graver dans nos mémoires et dans celle du monde. Je me souviens du... Lire la Suite →
