rapturous love #flash fiction #short prose

He looked for life in the long, ecstatic nights of our love.

I thought he did not understand that the frenzy of flesh always ends in death; that my body stood between him and heaven.

On the other hand, he argued that my body was his gate to heaven, his branch to eternity.

Ironically, it was the juxtaposing of our thoughts that made love so intense, so rapturous that we could not distinguish anymore between reality and fantasy.

    1. Thank you so much for your wind words and your support, Shantanu.
      Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Good morning dear G. You torture me to early on a Sunday morn.

    “long, elastic night of our love.” Sigh. I crave love that feels that way. The beauty of your words and your boundless creativity never cease to amaze.

    “my body was his gate to heaven; his branch to eternity.” Your words provoke thoughts of eternal bliss. The promise of love and sensual pleasures beyond the realm of heaven and Earth.

    Imagine – “love so intense…….we could not distinguish anymore between reality and fantasy.” The breathless abyss that makes our hearts and souls spiral out of control confusing our dreams and thoughts, creating a swirling potpourri of europhia.

    My dear, after reading this twice and a half dozen sighs, I was finally able to write these comments. Amending my “to Do List” to include make room in my library for Glass Lovers.
    Of course, I will request an autograph copy. I wil be the first on line at the book signing,

    1. Good morning, my dear Drew!

      Thank you so much for taking the time to read and for your wonderful words.

      “Amending my “to Do List” to include make room in my library for Glass Lovers.” How sweet of you. Of course you will get a signed copy (assuming that I can finish 🙂 All I want now is to be by myself on an remote tropical island and finish this book.
      Thank you again!

      On another note, how was your evening?

      1. I would be happy to chip in for the airfare.

        The evening was wonderful, Listening to old Cuban salsa and son. You should have been there. They sang one of my favorites too “Sabor A Mi.” I will send you a few pics. Thanks for asking.

      2. Haha!

        I am glad you enjoyed your evening. Ay ..”Sabor A Me.’ I love it. I envy you.

        May you have a fabulous day, Drew!

      3. Hey, regarding that remote island. I am thinking of relocating to Florida. Too many friends, old girlfriends, restaurants, and distracts here. I will never finish my book if I stay here.

        So, we are both thinking in terms of prioritizing our manuscripts.

        Have a glorious day. Squeeze in a little time for Glass Lovers. Ciao

      4. I will take Florida any minute. Unfortunately I cannot do it now.

        Yes, I am thinking about how to handle everything so I can write and finish.

        I will certainly find some time for Glass Lovers and for a sip of sangria today 🙂 Kidding!

        A presto, Drew 🙂

    1. Always right, my dear Eric, always right! So glad you are here.
      I hope you are having a fabulous Sunday evening.
