This morning I woke up…I think that’s a Freudian slip..not meant, my dream sort of fading but still intense. I had no idea her writing could give me this sensation, and at first did not grasp the seduction of her words, only felt with firm certitude the memory of her posts.
I dare not divulge her name, though she writes so beautifully. Dare not think too much, about the images she paints, how her words play with those who read, and the solid effect they leave when the sunrises the next day.
I remember a beautiful photograph of her back, and dreamt of touching her shoulders with my lips, of drifting down, lazily, printing soft patterns with long, languid sighs, drifting downwards, then back up again to whisper and feel the nape of her neck with my cheek.
For a few crucial moments, before I awoke I felt her nude body close to mine and she felt my desire, while entwined, and I told her I loved her mind, while I kissed the inside of her wrists and felt the warmth of her thighs, then kissed her fingertips and teased her lips with mine.
And while she wrapped her fingers around my tense, growing presence I admired her curves, before taking first her earlobes, then a touch further down, each gorgeously inflamed, ever more gently between my teeth, then her bellybutton, tracing tongue, in small circles of Maori design one finds on drummer’s arms, next to the swaying grass skirts of Tahitian dancers, and I thought of the tastes of those exotic flowers……………just before quite suddenly awakening…
The bed was empty, but where I’d dreamed she’d been it seemed warm, as if she had just left, so I stepped outside on the verandah as the rain poured, fresh, invigorating, over me, embarrassing me with its sudden coldness, causing a quick shrinking reaction better left unsaid…
