Us
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.

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. (http://dragonflysoup.blogspot.com/).

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!!

Mella,

With this little piece of writing you certainly have captured the 'Feel' of youth and first Love! (or attraction!) :)

I LOVED it! You made me feel 16 again!
