As you begin each day, stumbling out of bed half-awake with frizzy hair, don’t you long for a better day? Something a little like this:
She woke lying across the mats in the cabana hot and sweaty from the salty summer air. His smell and his near presence could still be felt deep within the pounding mind of desire. She fought her senses from bringing her back to the reality, knowing that he was gone…forever.
There was a better time and a better place where love lived on in the most joyous of ways. The feel of his touch or the sound of his voice carried her back many times. Often, she could still hear the whisper of her name off his lips. When she closed her eyes and breathed in the salty air, she could feel it all coming back to her. The nights so heavy and pressing beneath her inner soul were brought to life over and over again as he sought only pleasure within her mind and body. Her body cried out in the agony of knowing that he wasn’t hers to keep. It was for a moment, a mere second it seems that the world became flat and smooth as he had caressed the oils onto her back.
She was a better lover than she would ever be as a friend; his hand bore the ring of another so true and dear. Someone, who couldn’t deserve the man that he was, a childhood friend who wouldn’t understand. It broke her heart a million times over that she lie upon the man of another, but filled her senses with desire as she lent herself to his strong and passionate arms. Within those arms, she sought the freedoms of the heavens and stars above. Traveling the world over time and time again, it was only within the night that she could see and feel all that could be possible. Till the end of time, the memories of those night with him would be “just but a lottery” to all who came.
Thank you Tina Cook for letting me know that working for a living shouldn’t really be required if we could just win the lottery instead. I don’t know how that thought turned into this but it did. “Whata” spin huh! As always, I take requests big and small, serious to sultry.
