Talk Thursday: Desire (come and get it).

What is a world without desire?
Can there be heat without a fire?
Images of the past reappear from nowhere.
Instantly my heart and soul are taken back there
To where the world seems right,
Where day is day and night is night –
But right is wrong and wrong is right,
And light is dark and dark is light.
I’m not afraid, yet feel a fright . . . as I see her there.

(Ba-bump ba-bump ba-bump . . .)
In my chest, my heart is beating.
(Ba-bump ba-bump ba-bump . . .)
In my lungs, my breath is fleeting.
(Ba-bump ba-bump ba-bump . . .)
On my brow, the sweat is beading.
(Ba-bump ba-bump ba-bump . . .)
Deeper still, my loins are heating.
(Ba-bump ba-bump ba-bump . . .)
If it’s not yet happened, is it cheating?

A thirst for her begins to swell.
A realization this will not end well. . .
What can I do to make my peace?
What can I do to decrease the pain this tryst will cause?
I pause.

She approaches.

She takes my hand and places it softly on her breast. The top of her shirt is open – it is silk and the color is a green unlike any I have ever seen. Her eyes, beautiful by nature, reflect the color in a way they become fairy-like, glimmering, shimmering. My hand creeps around the nape of her neck as I slowly make my way across her Snow White skin, to circle, gently, the tenderness of her nipple.

“Hold me tight, this is right. Touch me here and here . . . and here . . .” The subtly of her wishes become much less subtle when she leans in and whispers in my ear, “Come and get it.”

I sit up. Confused. Disoriented. The visions are so vivid and clear. I don’t understand. I look around and see no beauty in green. I see trees. Grass. My horse.

Desire remains. Snow White does not.

“She’s a candle
burning in my room
I’m like the needle, needle and spoon” – Bono
