Touch Me

It’s been a while since I felt you. Since I’ve smelled your body against mine. I’m aching from the thought of you. My body hurts and my brain is mush with souvenirs of your hands on me. Your hands. They’re strong, firm and gentle. My body was their guide to pleasure, my pleasure. I remember your touch like the breeze soothing my skin now. The summer sun caressing me like you did so many times before. I remember your lips wet on me, all of me. Your lips… when I was thirsty they delivered me from that thirst. When I was hungry they fed me, sustained me. You…  Where are you? Why are you taking so long? You said…

“Hi.”

Relief. You’re here.

“Hi.”

“I’m sorry it took me so long. I know I said it wouldn’t but things happened and… Come here! Let me hold you before I collapse!”

Rushing towards you like my life depended on it. Your strong arms anchored around me and your lips nourishing my neck. You were such a sweet dream to me. Now you’re here holding me, kissing me… loving me.

“Do you have to leave again?”

“No. If I do, you’re coming with me. I don’t think I could survive again without you by my side.”

“Good. Now… touch me.”

  2. For some reason I found myself expecting some kind of unexpected twist, like the narrator is actually a baby, or a pet dog, a character that can’t actually verbalize their meaning. Clearly that’s not the case, but it’s interesting to me that I so quickly went down that path.
    Now I’m going to have to go back and see if I can figure out why.

      1. I wouldn’t worry. My interpretation didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the piece, and it’s always nice to provoke interesting thoughts in your audience.

  3. Hi Mel,
    Beautiful, intense, and sexual
    I teach writing at my school. I wish I could teach my students to write this well. However, they are still in middle school so maybe it is all for the best 🙂

  4. This just popped in my head. I was having a discussion with a some characters invading my thoughts while I was trying to review Chapter 10 of M.A.T.L and I had to post it. The fiction was strong with this one.

    Hope you like it.
