Sighing March 7, 2016

20160304_113926There is an endless sighing, a swift intake of breath, a slow exhalation, a single beat of my heart…

Watching you, I whisper your name. Gaze upon your beauty, engulfed by the flame of your desire. Long for you, feeling your love radiate… I do not, cannot, dare not look away. I cannot approach on my own, but you have drawn me ever nearer. Your wordless look has captured me, enraptured me.

Moments apart from the ordinary, a part of the ordinary, depart from the ordinary. The spaces between my heartbeats lengthen and shorten, little spaces, lingering sighs. I feel the hair on the back of my neck, falling from pins, and I am falling from sins.

Cleaner now, purified, I rise, through no effort of my own, I almost drift off the ground. I laugh.

The spell is broken.

Our time is through until I next respond to your call.

"I love the analogies! Great post too. Confession never disappoints."
