How Long Is Forever

The vision calls me once again against this restless night in brilliant strata gems, in timeless dreams of light. I close my ancient eyes, and there, so long ago I see the upward walls that rose above the eventide. For it was there where we scaled the lofty cliffs and breached the gates of a grand estate with rows of high arched windows, fine and endless rooms of decadence in decline. His youth, his hair, flowed e’er alive, my heart revived I followed in his footsteps as we ran among the heights. Hidden memories mingled within each dusty room trembling, we embraced and swayed to a distant tune. Under the vast, eternal sun, my heart was knit in rapt kinship, time melted in his presence our days divine, indelible design were carved for us and us alone. In a random room we laid upon a dingy floor his strong limbs, my budding breasts there to explore youth’s sparks as thick as honey that blossomed into a fragrance. No other bliss could be like this, I now know with mirrors in my mind of sunsets’ glow undimmed by time, I’ll ne’er forget... ...I open ancient eyes with honey on my lips.

A very fine write. Nice Heathcliff and moors feel to it. Youthful romances are so sweet when seen from a distance. Well done.

Laura, this is like taking a walk through your dream with evocative imagery and word choices. I really like "my heart was knit in rapt kinship" and the use of "ancient eyes". There is a mysterious timelessness to this that I just love. A great write, friend!
