there is only now

Time melts. Holds no meaning in its cogs and wheels. Slips by unnoticed. Unmarked by the moving hands of clocks or the rising and falling of the sun. The minutes are water. Fluid and running. Hours ebb and flood. The night is an ocean. And floating on its star-reflected swell, I wonder how time can liquefy. Dissolve. Transmute. How its value changes with its suggestion. How its marching tick can turn to a murmur in the dark. With your breath on my body and your hands in my hair. How long a moment can last and yet how little there seems to be when the world intrudes with dawnlight. But here. Here in the shadowless, timeless mere. You hold my hand and float with me. Across seas, where time is obsolete. Where yesterday is just the gloaming trace of indigo. And tomorrow a pattern of gold in the sky. And you whisper beautiful truths in the whorl of my ear. โ€œWith you; there is only now.โ€

    But is there tea?

  2. Katt says:

    Good question, Kyk. I would like to know too.

    @ Kyk > Nice try bucko. Not *all* girls use the tea approach. Some rely on more nefarious means. Like stealing his watch and pushing him in the duck pond.

    @ Katt > Sheesh, Katya…has tea ever worked for you? I’m gonna have to change my “get them drunk and unbutton yer top 3 buttons” approach.

    i need to consider this tea thing. Pointing at them and saying “You. Next…” seems to be working at the moment, however, and is ok so long so i keep them in their Guantanamo headgear. And desite the advertisments, with ball gags, one size does not fit all.

  5. Dolce – there is so much magic in your mind.

    @ Daisyfae > Aaah. Man it’s good to know that romance isn’t dead!

    @ Mandaloon > *shuffles feet* ta for popping in. And ja. The men in the white coats seem to think I need medication for that. (P.S. Read Daisyfae. She’s fukkin’ legend!)

    And I second what Mandy de Waal said! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. daisyfae says:

    sort of like an urban legend, i guess… of the “kidney thief” variety…

  9. Parenthesis says:

    Toe curling moments like these are rare and precious. Lovely post dear ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. dolceii says:

    @ Katya > One more, and we might have a quorum! And then those men are really going to come and get me.

    @ Daisy Fae > Dear god. Pity the poor bastard who got my kidney.

    @ Parenthesis > Feast or famine, as my lovely ma used to say.

  11. Parenthesis says:

    Unless you name is K. Noord ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Parenthesis says:

    As to men in white coats – never could resist a man in uniform …

  13. dolceii says:

    @ Parenthesis > T. Noord, I think is the moniker he’s adopting these days. A bit like T.J. Hooker, only with less sunglasses.

    And yes. I love a good stethoscope in the morning.
