The Story so far…

An attractive extra-terrestrial female researcher sent to a remote island to observe earth and beam back her findings is struggling with unfamiliar, alien romantic emotions. Even though she is forbidden to make human contact she revives a human male whose life is ebbing away when he is washed ashore.

Earth observatory dispatched a small boat outfitted with tracking equipment and a researcher to investigate unusual signal activity discovered to be emanating from remote island atolls. Disaster struck when his boat and equipment was smashed on the rocks during a storm. In a dream-like state he is aware of his savior, but has not managed to see her as she stays concealed in the bushes.   

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oh Earthling my thoughts are awry, my mind in confusion 
Does this condition have a name? Is this what you call love? 
An all-encompassing love that conquers all obstacles 
Power to blatantly surmount a disregarded decree from above? 

How will they assess my accelerating heartbeat when you I envision?
Decrypt - Encrypt- Sentiments Decode - Unravel thoughts of my nocturnal dreams?
Decipher inflamed passions awakened at sunrise to ardent thoughts present at dusk?
Snared in amatory chains am I - powerless to resist destiny’s reticent schemes

How must I profess my inmost secrets to you? In phrases of verse? 
You are an enigma yet my heart thrills savouring sweet bliss 
Planets aligned the time our energies entwined in my ‘breath of life’ 
‘I can express no kinder sign of love than in this kind kiss’ 

See through my eyes my planet of shimmering moonbeams 
Our Shangrila of luxuriant pristine forests will induce a sweet sigh
The alluring beauty and aroma of our flora will render you breathless 
Cruising our world on the backs of majestic avian we could fly 

I have prolonged my mission’s stay far too long already 
A perplexing dilemma I encounter should I go or stay 
In a deep, seemingly bottomless chasm of uncertainty I swim 
Wistful thoughts of you returning with me - my one hopeful ray

Natheless a decisive dynamic prompts me to unlock my reasoning 
To reveal myself for I have tarried concealed in the bushes too long 
Surrender my fevered lips with yours uniting us in a blissful kiss
Reject not my advances my love - lest I become but a fractured song 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I awaken to a songbird singing a sweet, lilting melody
Golden sun just above the horizon warms my face
A skein of geese fly southward across an endless sea
Yes, this is my world and I, yes I, am alive!

Still, these visions of an otherworldly creature 
Keep flashing before my eyes, causing me to ponder
Just what has transpired of late, an adventure
Into the unknown and perhaps… the unknowable?

The pounding in my head has dissipated, my energy renewed.
But just where am I?  How will I survive this lonely isolation?
A sudden sense of urgency impels me to search for food
I turn toward the lush, forested hills in an attempt to…

My eyes - transfixed!  Someone emerging from amongst the trees
A godlike creature with cherubic eyes - the angel in my dreams?
Perhaps this is heaven after all; instinctively I fall upon my knees
And prostrate myself before this divine, celestial being

My benefactor touches my hand, beckoning me to stand upon my feet
She tries to speak but the sound is unlike anything ever heard,
Her voice like a gentle flute with deliberate, melodic tones that tweet
At varying intervals, a hypnotic sonance that sets me at ease

I ask where she is from, what does she want from me?
She places my hand over her heart and hers upon mine
As I look intently into her eyes my spirit is suddenly set free,
Transported somehow to an alien world of transcendent splendor

A cacophony of sounds, colors, and thoughts flood my brain
Softly, deftly, she places her hand upon my brow and the confusion ends
The words, ‘breath of life, bonded for life’ play like a  freight train
Roaring through my head, over and over until I finally understand-

She wants to take me home with her…


Planets align and energies entwine        
      A confetti of stars shower as lips meet in a raptured kiss once more
         

* finale coming soon

Hi Tom, I enjoyed part two as well. It was like I was reading a good book that I didn't want to end. The language of "love" brings much understanding. You two write well together. I anticipate the next installment. Excellent job:-) Alexis

Most aliens seem malevolent, at least according to Hollywood

Best laugh all day. LOVE IT. Of course, he's going all the way to HELL. She'll probably eat him in the end... I await the next installment with bated breath... digging "natheless"...p.s. that's a paler version of what I envisaged....I was going for Othello. Best story on PS so far!

bit of salt n pepper and avocado ... smashed. He's toast. Yeah I can see where she's at, it's all too comfortable, that chick will more than likely turn, she needs a bit of surf n turf, otherwise, she's going to go cannibal on him.

Looks like love is progressing well--a fascinating story you two have created..though I had hoped for a supernal baby between the two love interests; and the other world-power demanding a release of the baby...I must wait for your next episode! Kudos to you JM and Maria.
