Stirring – a Microstory

I long to feel his hip bones pressed painfully against mine. His voice, so deliciously smooth, I want to spread it on toast to devour.

But I am the wrong person to care. I am unavailable; bound by the contract of marriage.

      Thank you. I really wanted the lust to come through – not an easy task with so few words! I love the microfiction challenge.

    Oh dear! Not good for her. Hah

      Oh thank you! I really wanted to make her desire for this man shine through. I’m telling myself her husband is an arsehole anyway, hehe…

    I want it to spread it on toast……………. Romance oozes from every pore of your poetry. Enjoyed reading it.

    I imagined his voice as Nutella. The last sentence got a little telly and not showy for me.

      You absolutely right. I think I was petrified, as I am most weeks, about not actually answering the week’s question! Thank you for your honest feedback.
