Your hand first held my thigh. Slid the length of my leg and rested just above the knee, before our fingers met and palms pressed. A backward introduction - legs before hands.

We were in a packed little room with a small flickering television; friends crumpled together on couches and sprawled across the floor. But we might as well have been alone, up on our couch, our bodies hidden beneath the soft warmth of a flannel blanket.

My fingertips traced the curves of your knuckles and the length of your fingers. I felt the gentle weight of your hard-skinned palm. Your hand cupped mine delicately as though I was porcelain and as fragile as the moment - the beginning of us.

I am the touch, the movement, the warmth hidden beneath the blanket. I am the curves that encourage your fingertips, and I am the moment you have experienced - I am now.

Talk about a crisp and vivid moment! Great piece!

Some things in life are very different, but so many have points of life in common.


P.S. Thank you for the link. It means a lot!

I just wanted to say that i adore the way you write. Reading your blogs reminded me that I used to like to write too and in fact have started (just started) my own little space in blogworld. (

Drop by if you're interested. I found your space through a link on someone else's page (a girl a dog and a second chance). Like I said, I've really enjoyed reading yours (and others) and decided to take the leap. Cheaper than therapy!!

I LOVED it! You made me feel 16 again!
