In the Light of the Dawn


In the light of the dawn
the sun illuminates your skin
and pierces into me
waking me
to a familar morning desire...
   
     the taste of your lips on mine
     the feel of your body under my fingertips
     the tight draw of your breath to my touch
     the sound of my name in your sighs
     the heat of a hungry exchange

In the light of the dawn
the sun encourages me
to reach out to you
waking you
for this moment together

     a nanosecond in the corner of the universe
     a chance to manipulate the course of forever
     a new beginning
     a different ending
     a  release to what is kept inside

In the light of the dawn
the sun melts away the bitter
with your strong arms
pulling me
into you.

I haven't been to 3WW in a while and I thought I'd check it out today. This week's words are Bitter, Manipulate, and Tight. I'm glad that I stopped by. I also see a bit of influence from a new blog I've been reading called No Fire. Do yourself a favor and check out the submissions to 3WW and the posts on No Fire.

I'd also like to remind you that today is Transgender Day of Remembrance. Let's take a moment to remember those who have died because of another person's fear or hate.

  4. This placed me right in the moment. Especially liked these lines:

    a nanosecond in the corner of the universe
    a chance to manipulate the course of forever
    a new beginning
    a different ending
