That space of time when you're pressed up against another body in bed. Warm heat radiating on a brisk autumn evening, winter breaking through on the outside just about ready to settle and stay. Blankets twisted around your legs. Faces inches apart, breathing in sweet musky air.
Each word spoken a measured statement. Nothing is leaving your lips without contemplation. Small breaths taken in between each sentence. Your arms going numb as you're afraid to shift and chase away the comfortable.
Words escape the mouth you can't help but kiss.
An off cuff statement, loaded with allusion and hints. This is not the time to ask what was meant. And as you both drift off to sleep you can't help but think about its implications and slowly smile.
This other being, leans over your curled self, pecks your cheek and whispers in your ear. "I missed you."
And soon light snores fill the room.
All of that.
So dear readers, do you know these moments? Care to share?
