Inspired by this piece by Cara Thereon, I’m keeping this post punchy and brief. How many words does it take to convey absolute desire? Eighty, apparently.

It’s the moonlight on your shoulder that does me in, or maybe it’s the smoke from the candle as you purse your lips and blow, plunging us into near darkness. It curls around your face and hair and momentarily you’re a silvery angel, nestling into the nest of the bed, the dark flash of a smile as you pull my hands to your body. I’ve never touched anything so alive as you are, crackling with magic, lighting up the night.
