First Light

I woke cocooned in perfect warmth and sleepy contentment this morning
Swimming up through the soft, wispy layers of consciousness, smiling
Our past lives rattled the windows and tried to peek in to disturb
Nothing could break the spell, or disturb the sleeping mirage in my arms
This morning, I’m not alone. The dark-haired myth now shares my pillow
A faerytale knight once, now  warm, real and perfect in this story
Shining armour strewn upon my floor, a testament to who won the night before

In the moments when tenderness is the mistress holding my desire in check
I watch him sleep. Traces of the little boy come and go with his breathing
Lashes cast a shadow on his cheek, a stray lock of hair falls over the wing of his brow
He stirs with a soft sigh and in sleep, takes my hand where it rests on the crest of his hip
So beautiful, so vulnerable. I am filled with, overflowing with the gentlest, most tender love
A most fierce wish to shield and protect and… Desire, Love’s brilliant disguise
White hot, aching desire that I can’t keep inside. Wake up Love. Wake to love me again
