Shimmering warmth








The room is filled with gently flickering candlelight
while entrancing scents waft through the air,
capturing the melodious voices, sparkling with laughter,
enchanted by the music that's caressing their soul.
And its through this haze of shimmering warmth
that I watch you from a distance,
your movements, your lips,
your eyes that dance,
that stir awake a longing,
borne from the touch of long and hot nights
spent at the mercy of your love,
now teasing the edge of my consciousness,
driving a desire to own your flesh once again.
I watch, mesmerized, as your eyes lift, infinitely slow,
before locking my eyes with an intent
running invisible fingers lazily down my spine,
delivering promises, bent of fulfilling,
the need that's written in my eyes...

  8. Whoa, whoa, whoa...is it HOT in here?

    There for a while, I didn't think I'd be able to visit with you today, I kept getting "service unavailable" ....whatever the heck that means. LOL

    Glad I persisted, I would have missed this excellent piece of work.

  19. I often wonder if these are about the same lover..
    Different lovers?
    Lovers from the past?

  20. Just at the moment I began reading this piece, "Since You Asked", by Judy Collins came on in my headphones.

    It made this poignant and sensual piece, even more so.

  22. This is such a passionate and layered piece. I love the "edges of consciousness" and "invisible". You have a unique way of tying up your work with great endings. I always had too much trouble with that! The image is perfect for it...I can almost hear the background music as well!
