Utopia

dancingwithlaughter1-4000

It was one of those days..  The planned ones where they were intentional and got away from their to-do lists and the world.  They wanted to do everything and nothing,
but always ended up doing something.

No matter what though, with one look in each other’s eyes, from embers of prior moments… The flames would be fanned, igniting a roarous applause of heat,
creating a blaze that would melt their time, their touches, and their desire
into one eventual…, smoldering…, breathless wave of….. Utopia.

“The Woods”

thewoods-4000

Perhaps they had something to tell him.
Teach him?
Perhaps an old recollection long forgotten…
… on purpose.

Pausing, and turning his head,
He entertained momentarily engaging them.
But something halted him from the inside of his chest.
Moving on… He’ll never know.

And he’ll have to be okay with that.

Priorities

gettingdressed2-4000

He stepped into her dressing room, and closed the door quietly.  He leaned against the door and crossed one foot over the other, then his arms, and studied her; smiling all the while.  She was oblivious to his presence right now.  He enjoyed the candid mannerisms he observed as she checked her dress, and slipped on a necklace; clasping it behind her neck.  He was about to speak up, when he realized she was now looking at her hand.  The hand bearing the ring he gave her about 24 hours ago.

“Can you see the future in that thing yet?” he joked, pushing off of his stance and walking towards her at the closet.  His eyes didn’t move from her.  He rather liked watching her skin flush.

“It’s just new.  I can look at it if I want,” she quipped at him with a beautiful grin; her eyes following him in the mirror.

He leaned against the closet now, his body mimicking his earlier position; just reflected.  She turned side to side, now presenting her complete outfit to him.  “What do you think?  Will this suffice for your next surprise, Sir?”

God she was beautiful…  He stepped closer, watching a blush rise to her cheeks again as she turned, leaning against the mirror.  He slowly picked up her hand with the ring, his eyes lifting to hers with a mischievous fire sparking.  She knew that look, and she began to giggle softly, shaking her head.  “Oh no…. No…. We have a schedule to keep!  You need to behave!”

He growled…. Turning to a moan as he regrettably turned and began to pull her towards the door.  “Yes. You’re right. You’re right.”

She gave him a soft smile; almost apologetic, but her words were full of sarcasm to tease.  “Time to work on your priorities…”

He had just opened the door to allow her to walk through, but he stopped…. Pausing… His eyes rolling up in his head.  He kicked the door closed and turned to her quickly, in time to hear her gasp.  He yanked her to him, and grinned wickedly.  Slowly, as he bent to kiss her bare shoulder, he told her, “Then allow me to show you the order of priority.”

Fall…ing

fallpicnic1-4000

A new season is almost as good as a new  year.  Out with the old; in with the new.  The atmosphere around you changes.  Gives you something new to look at.
Perhaps this one is your season, too.  Bonus…

Fall symbolizes many things to many people.  Turning over a new leaf.  A second spring.  Letting go.  Perhaps, simply falling.

Falling slowly
Eyes that know me
And I can’t go back

Moods that take me
And erase me
And I’m painted black

Will you have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

So take this sinking boat
And point it home
We’ve still got time

-Falling Slowly: Josh Groban-

A Tall Drink

nightcap1-4000

He dropped his keys in the tray by the front door, smiling and petting his dog on the head as he looked around for his greeting from the lady of the house.  Usually, a bright-eyed and warm smile was waiting for him either at the door already, or coming around the corner towards him.  Looking up from the dog, that’s when he saw a yellow post-it note stuck to the door frame, and grinned.

Walking towards it, shifting his work satchel in his right hand, he plucked the note off and read it.  “A tall drink awaits you.”  His face lit up and his eyebrows raised.  He growled a little as he stuck the note back where it was and moved to loosen his tie… You know… To relax.

Rounding the corner, there she was.  She was hunched down, almost to her knees, and…. albeit from what he could tell, quite stunning.  He watched her curves stand back up, following the graceful way her body moved as she turned, her expression obviously in thought as she tried to choose a wine for the evening.

The right corner of his mouth curled up into a small grin, watching with pride as he tried to slow his thoughts of his plans for the evening, down.  She looked like she had made a definite decision on a wine for their night, when he spoke huskily, “You look gorgeous.”  He instantly smiled, watching her place her hand on her chest a moment, startled.

“I didn’t even see you!”

He was already closing the distance between them, placing his bag on the barstool next to her purse.  She began to giggle and blush, seeing the look in his eyes, taking a step back.  She really couldn’t go anywhere, seeing as she was surrounded by glass and their piano.  Placing a hand on the bar to steady herself, she tried to compose herself.  “We have dinner plans out tonight.  You best behave.”

He walked past her, admiring the dress she had chosen for the night. “How much time do we have?” he asked firmly, standing directly behind her now, tracing his middle fingers down her arms.

There it was… The hitch in her breathing he was going for.  She tried to answer him steadily, but it came out in a breathless reply.  “An hour and a half…”

Immediately after she answered, he pulled her body to his fast and hard.  He used the top of his head to move hers to the side, exposing more of her neck.  He parted his lips to place on her, but barely did so.  His warm breath moved up from the small of her neck to behind her ear as he spoke low, holding her body in his arms now.  “Plenty of time, darling.  I’m thirsty for something tall.”
