Heaven is closer than you think...

The smell of fresh-cut grass, mixed with the play of sunlight on your skin. The sound of the clouds rushing by. The memory of strawberries on my tongue, your hands dance butterflies over my skin.

Run towards the door. Downpour. Tumble inside, leaning on each other. Look at one another and laugh. Take me in your arms, your mouth finds mine.

A propeller plane soars overhead. Seagulls compete for scraps, you splash water at me. Our castle gets washed away by the waves. You hold me as the sun sets.

Silence. A blanket covers the world. We walk out, lost in each other. You bend down, then I have snow down my back. Run, tumble, laugh, trip, cold, wet, run, you on me in snow. Still. A kiss. A laugh.

Stars wheel overhead. Chatting of anything, of nothing. Clouds the shape of frogs pass over head. You turn my heart, my life upside down in a few words. Closer now. Hand stroking my hair.

“Lets do something we will never forget”. Plans for Gloucestershire, Cornwall, France. Excitement. To be able to be alone with you for a few days. Heaven.

    Excellent sensitive writing bringing special moments vividly to life – I got a feeling this could maybe be an extract from a longer piece anyway, a lovely piece of work

  • Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments George :) this is a combination of memories and imagination, so i guess it is an extract from the longer piece that is life… Im glad you like it :)
