Bittersweet Whispers

By Sephera

The room is darkened

Invariably the hush falls between us

So deep

So true

He falls on knees

Comes towards me

Wraps his arms around in a bittersweet embrace

My legs in fold him

The truest embrace

Fingers along my spine

His breath on my neck

The smell of him inflames

The truest touch

Fingers send electricity

Up and down my being

My soul reverberates

The tone of forever longing

It leaves its mark

Like a burn across the flesh

These fingers

His fingers

Along my spine

Bittersweet whispers

Left in my ear

As fingers entwine my hair

As my own entwine                                                                             

His being

Feeling him

Feeling me


Sweet whispers in my ear

“I wish I could be there for you”

Breath leaves me


And all that is left is him

In my embrace

So sweet

So true

All I can say is

“I wish you would let me be there for you”

Author's Note:

This is the last encounter between me and my love... Written in truest form... It took me long to write this, because I felt that writing it would be losing it... Now I believe it is the way to cleanse the soul, not to lose that part... Please be kind...
