The Shower

He lay on his side in the bed, upper torso almost naked, wrapped in the sheets, scrolling on his phone. Straightening herself from unpacking, she walked over to where he was.

“I’ll go take a shower first.”

In response, he reached out and pulled her into bed and his arms. She gasped as she landed in his encircling warmth.

“I haven’t showered in a day… that’s unacceptable… I need to take a shower.”

“Okay… go shower.”

He loosened his embrace and for a moment she was uncaged. She remained where she was, gazing into his face, and his lips, corners curled in a slight smile.

Then, she leaned over and kissed him on his mouth, feeling the soft bristles above his upper lip as his tongue met hers and his lower lip, full against hers.

His arms came around her again as he smiled at her surprised gasp.

“You’ve had your chance.”

And then they were inseparable.

His arms were around her, maybe hers around him then… were his lips on hers or did they rove down her neck? She might have trailed her moist tongue down his chest, breathing warmth as she went…

Like each time in the past, she could not remember.

All she remembered that afternoon was the window was all along open, behind the facade of white curtains. And she blushed when he teased her about how everyone would have heard.

She could not remember.
But she would not forget.

I Want To Know You

I want to know you –
Your typical morning habits
What you totally hate eating
What you actually mean when
You don’t say a word, or do
Little things that often go
Unnoticed, except when time
Stands still, but time is
Never on our side, so
Before it’s too late
I want to know you.

Daily Prompt: Symbiosis

To make me whole
I was always searching for
The missing half of my soul
Until we found
The missing half of your soul
You were always searching for
To make you whole.

Daily Prompt: Maddening

And what a lovely vision I had today.

One day, love, we’ll be
Far away from maddening crowds
Sitting close by in
Our living room, as the sun sets
Golden ochre hues
Washing over us, as we sip
Our coffees, and turn
To marvel the beauty in such
Quiet, blissful peace.

Instead

Instead of falling
In love, let’s walk the whole way
Together instead.

Daily Prompt: Unfinished

There was a story I began
A pleasing imaginary prose
That it details parts of us
Was something I didn’t know;
So now I’m at the chapter
At which I’m uninspired
Will you not write it with me
Till the ending that does matter.

Daily Prompt: Together

Together
To gather all
Courage to love
Through the impossible
Believing that it will
Outlast all pain
Overcome all odds
Together.
