“On this coldest of winter nights….my dreams take their usual flight.” ~Kara
The universe sent a most serene cloud to my barren rooftop, under yet another starless sky last night. Atop that fluffy cloud, there lay the faintest whisper (a message in re you, my beloved!).
My eyes did not shoot open as one might expect at this exciting and unexpected nocturnal adventure. Nor did I awaken upon a breath of morning sunlight, tickling weary bones inside my cold, cavernous bed.
Instead, my eyes fluttered open, unceremoniously, just as that cloud settled. It was hard not to smile. My next breath came as I felt you…
Yes. I felt you…across the ocean, in the same predicament as me. The world slipped away as images of you dancing with me, holding me, and leading me consumed my tired heart. My body became instantly warm under silken attire, immediately responsive to your invisible caresses.
You are forever a king among all of the princes in my world, always ruling with a velvet, benevolent touch. I couldn’t bear a world without you and it didn’t take a thing…not a single thing at all to love you, to worship you, to adore you.
So, sleep, tonight, my love, I beseech thee. You’ve slayed your fair share of dragons and you’ve kept my heart intact, sometimes those two feats being one and the same. Receive balmy dreams of love and peace, for no one deserves them more.
Your poetry can wait… ♥
