Felt Words

Heartfelt words write stories into flesh. I wished it, but never believed it could happen.

I reread his note:

I (want to) art my love in ink…
in verbs made of your touch,
in nouns that make me yours.

Write with me?

I wrote my Yes atop his question, the inky strokes tickling my thigh.

  1. So beautiful….a sense of dreamy yearning…love it. I feel the vibe of a romantic partner…(can’t help it, I am a romantic soul at heart)

    have a sweet day ..and a very beautiful Autumn Equinox! Enjoy the magic xo

  2. Oh, the power of words to affect not only our minds and hearts but our bodies too <3 And those inky strokes (hers? his? I like to think both) tickling her thighs…. mmmm 😀

  3. The first line! Evetually, we’ll all be able to write words that are more a part of us, right? You do better than almost anyone at that. I can only hope it gets easier for writers as they go on, but I’m not sure…

  4. I have read this three times, and still, I want to hear it again, to catch all the little twists and nuances. Is there anything sexier than nouns and verbs? But then, perhaps this is not about that, but about a collaboration of two creative souls, or even a fantasy of two who speak different languages finding a common one…so many stories in your 55 I can’t pick just one. I am so glad you are playing, and playing it this way, because as I see it, a kickass weekend is just unavoidable after(writing) reading this. 😉

    • I don’t think we can’t write something sexy without making it about words. If the words aren’t sexy, neither is the rest. And goodness, have you ever seen anything sexier than a verb? The way they move and do things with their subjects. 😀

      I’m just as glad that you started this. I wanted (needed) a place to write/share fiction. And your Friday 55 is perfect.

  5. There is something in this that makes me think of the innocence of passing notes to a crush in homeroom. And yet, there is a rather grown up sentiment in that invitation.

    Hmmm…why can’t it be all three? 😀

  6. I can think of one word that acts as both noun and verb when it comes to intimate writing and action–Tattoo. I will make no choice not being familiar with the surrounding text. Yet I will congratulate you on a 55 that is coherent without previous knowledge of that which came before.

    Well Done
