Momentary Bliss

bylucky-E-leven©

Jarring noise shatters the darkness.
Clawing through the fog of sleep
I reach out,
heart pounding
anticipation,
excitement.

Her voice cradles me.
Carrying me through the fog
safely,
gently
delivering me to the morning.

Bliss,
happiness,
love,
contentment
fill my heart.
Dreams remembered and shared,
giggles turn to laughs
as the new day dawns.

Time marches on
and the day will not wait;
the darkness comes again -
this time from within.

The click of the line
so subtle,
so final;
she is gone -
for now.
Alone again
waiting and pining
for the next moment of bliss.

Stepping from the plane,
eyes finally locked
where hearts have always been:
Together.
Her cheek pressed to mine
my arms around her,
hearts beat together as one.

Bliss
happiness,
love,
contentment
fill my heart.
Dreams realized and created anew,
giggles and laughs abound,
united for now.

Time marches on
The week has passed;
dismal goodbyes and returned longing
plague two souls
torn apart by circumstance

Walking away
so unnatural,
so wrong.
My heart rips slowly in two
Until the next moment of bliss.

Missed calls,
lost messages,
life's habit of interfering
with the delicate balance
of long distance love.

One day, my sweet,
our bliss
will cease to be momentary.
