|He closed, each night, with a line of kisses...|
He said goodnight. He closed, each time, with a line of kisses, a string stretching from his lips to hers, across valleys and mountains, leaving his breath on angels’ flights to seek her out and deliver them to her. Tonight was different somehow. She stared at the line of kisses and his hurried “I love you” and wondered if tonight her pleading had reached him somehow... if it had somehow broken the barrier of distance that hung between them. She’d wanted him to make love to her, to take her in his arms and give her what only he was capable of. She’d wanted to be lifted high above the clouds on a gust of wind and to meet him up there, to dance with him there, to be with him there. They would dance on a moonbeam and have stars for candles... they would watch comets streak past and laugh at their uniqueness... who else could make love among the stars... who else could float past Jupiter in orgasmic bliss... who else could see as they did? Their uniqueness set them apart, it always had. They had led difficult lives far from each other but something had brought them together this far. It was up to them to bridge the final gap. Tonight she wondered if he was closer to making that leap... She felt that she was waiting for him on the other side of a gully... and all he had to do was take a terrific leap of faith... a leap that she herself had already taken... and he would be here with her, and in her arms. That same uniqueness that taught them to soar above the clouds... that same uniqueness that made them stare into the candles’ flames and watch the ocean’s waves... that same uniqueness that drew them so laboriously together... that same uniqueness was keeping them apart somehow... There was no one to whom they could turn for advice... no one who could understand their flights among the stars... no one to know how they felt and how terribly difficult is was for them. Except each other. He closed, each night, with a line of kisses... straight from his lips on angels’ wings, flying to her to be savoured one at a time... to keep warm on the long winter nights... to push back the pangs of loneliness... to kindle a spark of hesitant hope... someday. Someday we will fly, above the clouds and among the stars... where our hearts will swell as we cling tightly to each other and dance along the moonbeams... Tweet
