he called her sister

I heard them call each other royalty.
She loved him like a soulclap and spoke using muted hand movements as extended (((parentheses))).
Almost as if to cup her (heart) in truth and let some words seep through her fingers like warm sand
....Spoke louder in writing than in person
expressions hidden in the spaces between hyphens – , slashes/ and [square brackets]

.....So she CLAPS, snaps and head bobs to beats... because loving him like a soulclap is the closest thing she's ever known to love.
and a first. ...I'm trying folks lol.. bear with me).
