Nineteen Minutes

"When you love someone, there's a pattern to the way you come together.
You might not even realise it, but your bodies are choreographed:

A touch on the hip, a stroke of the hair.
A staccato kiss, break away, a longer one,
his hand slipping under your shirt.

It's a routine, but not in the boring sense of the word.
It's just the way you have learnt to fit,
and it's why,

when you have been with one guy for a long time,
your teeth do not scrape together when you kiss;
you do not bump noses or elbows."

--- Jodi Picoult ---
