At one end there was a deep crevasse people wanted to explore. The other end was partially hidden by a dark cascading wave. The lowest point in the middle was full, swollen, and dipped into a valley. The magnificence was really apparent when the light hit it just right, highlighting the disparate colors and textures: white polish against red softness. It was only truly captured not in a photo but by another pair of lips pressing up against it urgently. Then it faded to another glory.
