For my thrilling entry I went with the love side of things and composed a poem.  I hope you all enjoy it!

His Sweet Breath

He looked so tranquil
like a still, serene pond.
The pale morning light
gave the whole room a bluish tint
and promise.

His chest
all soft pastels
and touchable skin.
His lips slightly parted,
his sweet breath
warm on her shoulder.

Like this
he was nothing but possibilities-
and she could project onto him
any future her imagination could birth.
Dreams.

But in the harsh light of day
those dreams would vanish,
vanquished by the light,
like shadows at noon.
And the stark landscape of reality
would steal this cerulean world.

So she slid her naked body off the bed
holding her breath
as the sheets caressed her,
sending a lingering shiver through her lithe form.
She grabbed her dress.

She allowed herself one last,
longing look at this gentle world.
Then turned the latch
and slipped out.
Exhale.

And that's it!  It's probably different than you were expecting but hopefully enjoyable nonetheless.
And now, please hop along to read the other thrilling stories!

    1. That's very nice, Beverly, Thanks for sharing it with us. I think it takes a special talent to write poetry. It's one I don't have, unfortunately.

    2. You know what? I honestly didn't think I did, either! But I started fiddling around and taking risks and people have been responding well. I say try it again and you might be surprised.

  8. Beautiful imagery. I imagine she is fantasizing by moonlight. And since I'm the reader, the reader is always right ;)

    Seriously cool. Read it twice. Pretty firm on my interpretation. Don't try to sway me!
