Devotion, Fondness, And Affection

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.

Long Shadows

Long Shadows

Adoration For The One I Admire And Love

The late afternoon shadows speak of oncoming cooler days and nights. The old telephone pole out front is casting it’s shadow long across the lawn. A maple tree long since cut down lays in the green grass waiting to become a piece of furniture, or perhaps something else.

I wonder as to why I have felt so drained and exhausted these past few weeks. Is it the changing of the seasons, summer into autumn, shorter days along with sleeping in longer? Colder nights makes for good sleeping weather. Snuggling and cuddling with a spouse or significant other under the covers is always reassuring and comforting.

As nighttime falls I am restless but sedated by a lusty dark wine.
Quiet but edgy, I wait upon my twilight lover.
He is disguised as a ghost poised to hauntingly hypnotize.
I surrender to him and listen as he sings his comforting lullabies.

We embrace and entwine around each other like eels rotating in the depths of the sea. We bond as forever lovers do and midnight is upon us dark and surreal.
I find myself attentive, depending on him to lead me where I have never been. He is able to reach inside to calm my restless mind.

I am finally completely relaxed, tranquil and satisfied as we fall asleep. I know I will be conscious of him beside me safe to dream of him again and again with a tender passionate devotion.
