This Room

 

The darkness slowly vanishes from this room as the sun filters through gossamer curtains

 

Waking up to the sight of the other for the first time

 

Darkness belonging to her, darkness belonging to him, slowly vanishing as a seed of love planted long ago begins to blossom

 

The damp chill of the air conditioner makes him reach for her for warmth, as if for the thousandth time

 

New but familiar, his touch warm, soothing like a soft summer breeze, she melts into him and purrs

 

The low growl of his voice echoing in her ear, she feels herself become completely enveloped by his touch

 

A flash of memories that have never existed appear in their minds as if awaking from a dream,

two souls reuniting after a lifetime apart 

 

His liquid fingers pour through her silk hair, she gazes into his blue eyes, deep as the ocean, with curiosity

 

They lose themselves for an instant in the other’s stare, imagining a forever of these moments

 

He speaks, something soft and slight, she giggles and grabs him, pressing her lips to his

 

Her soft floral scent mixing with the oakiness of his, they breathe in their air, and drink each other in with ever-growing desperation. 

 

This room, a safe haven for the consummation of a lifetime of fantasies…

This room, the soft fertile ground to plant their garden...

This room a sanctuary for worship...

This room, witness to the birth of a lifetime of love and joy… 

This room, unforgettable.
