It was a dandelion night, filled with humid heat. I felt a whisper of breath as my wishes took flight. My heart ached with want diffused with doubt. The sultry scent of man and sea salt kissed my lips, aroused my soul. The crickets and frogs stuttered to a silence, widening the void between love me and love me not. A voice murmured my name in the ripples of the creek. I tiptoed forward, tempted by memory to take a dip. With body mid-dive to water 5 inches deep, I felt your embrace as you rocked me back to sleep.
