To Sleep, Perchance...
By Joyce Sterling Scarbrough

I wrote this as a favor to someone who wanted to contact an old lover. They ended up losing their nerve and not sending it, so this never saw the light of day until now.

There’s a place where nobody exists but you and me.

 

You’re happy to see me and take me in your arms. There is no need to rush because neither of us has anywhere else to be, so at first we only kiss like the young lovers we were.  We savor the taste of each other and let the memory of past kisses warm our bodies in anticipation of a sweet reunion.

 

I sit on your lap so I can kiss you deeply, my hands in your hair and yours pulling me against you so tightly that I can count your heartbeats. Once my thirst for your kiss is quenched, I move my lips to your neck and whisper, “Do nothing but close your eyes and believe.”

 

You shake your head and try to resist, and I know you want to impress me with skills perfected in other women’s arms, but my hands and my mouth make you give in to me.  Nothing will do but that I have you at my mercy, lost in ecstasy beyond your wildest dreams, because only then can I make you believe.

 

And when you’re breathless from the things I’ve done and clinging to me in fear that again it won’t last, I’ll whisper that I’ll always love you.  And you’ll believe me because it’s true.

 

Then I wake and you’re not here, so I miss you every waking moment and wait for the next time I close my eyes, when I can make you believe me again.
