The sun seeped in through the crack windows of the room and I could feel its warm rays on my cooled and delicate skin. Dust and soiled earth were in the air as my eyes fluttered open. Just as my body woke, I felt my lover kiss on my shoulder blade. The kiss was warm as I shifted my body to face them.
Their strong and delicate eyes glowed in the misty room. Their fingers weaved into my shiny and silky hair. I let my sleepy eyes close to the sensation of the feeling. Just like the growing vines outside my window, my feelings for this person grew, and the throned branches delicately reach out to their soul.
“I must go now”. The gentle voice echoed throughout the room. I lifted my tired body off the small bed and fully looked at you in amazement. “Why?” I asked groggily. “Where are you going?”
“I’m only going to be gone for a few hours” you explained to me in a calm and playful voice. I knew something was up as you put on your clothes. I grabbed your arms, and I made you turn around to look at me. “Can I please go out and explore a bit” I let my voice go soft and timid. “Your world looks so beautiful, I want to see more of it”.
The look and beauty that came from your eyes let me knew you could not say no to me. But you knew this world will hurt me and try to manipulate me. You didn’t want me to experience the world. You didn’t want me to experience the pain of the damned souls of this world.
You gently took my hand, and you slowly removed it from your muscular arms. You took this time to center me and to look into your deep and mesmerizing eyes. “Of course, my love; you are free to roam as you please.” His voice was soothing, like a summer breeze. Just as we spoke, I felt myself in a daze and imagining myself walking along the beach on a warm summer day with you holding my hand.
“I just want you to stay on the forest path… You shouldn’t travel when it gets dark.” The scenery is green and dark You let me know that the path to the forest would be dark and terrifying. The deep and creepy darkness was ready to fall on the land. I could still hear the crows cawing in the midnight air. Your words flooded through my mind.
‘Stay on the forest path; start heading back here before it gets dark’
Darkness took you from me; now they wish to remind me of your soul and legacy. A soft smile spread across my face. The darkness of my soul sang in a soft melody. I looked to the side of me and found beautiful small lily pads floating down the darkened stream. Small golden and silverfish swam up the stream in the opposite direction. I let myself stop in my tracks and walk over to the stream. I touched the smooth, cold water and I let the fish brush against my fingertips.
