Even immortal

17 Nov

The mask rendered her exotic and wild.

Venice. Late evening. A sultry, velvet, expectant night.

Standing in the middle of a hushed and empty square dominated by a blind, sleeping church.  The last calls of the gondoliers echoing along silent, narrow canals.

The dress was like a sheath.  It clung to her body as hungrily as my desire.  Her curves were elegant and perfect beneath sheer silk. Her hair, raven-black, strangely lit by the weak street light, fell to her pale, bare, elegant, vulnerable shoulders in a lustrous cascade.  Her nipples, urgent beneath the cloth, betrayed her.

I could see her eyes glittering like living jewels behind the half face mask she had worn to the masquerade, now silenced by distance.  The tip of her tongue slid over her slightly parted lips. Otherwise she was completely still.

From somewhere nearby a clock uttered a deep, muffled, single chime.

“Take it off.” I said softly.

She slowly reached behind for the zip with one hand.  She guided it down to the small of her back with the other. She peeled the dress from her like a second skin.  It fell at her feet with a whisper.

The ancient city seemed to hold its breath, and then sigh.

I will never forget the divine beauty of her body in that holy, timeless, heart-stopping moment.

Even if I become immortal.

    I love this. There was that brief second when I thought he meant the mask. Then…the zipper…and of COURSE. The dress.

    ” (…) She peeled the dress from her like a second skin.  It fell at her feet with a whisper. The ancient city seemed to hold its breath, and then sigh” (…)

    I held my breath the entire time it took me to read this. There’s something very subtle about this scene but then again for those who know your writing it’s also very eloquent. Beautiful blend of sensuality and mystery. I enjoyed it very much while standing in the line at the bank 🙂

      Smiling at the thought of you standing in a line (queue!) in somewhere like Kansas reading my blog about desire in Venice written in the UK. It is a small world. Thank you for the compliments.

    You led me through a sumptuously lyric poem to a fantastic ending.

    He was standing there, still and silent, awash in silver from a moon hanging so low in the sky as to make one believe one could reach out and touch it. I sensed his energy tripping across the ancient stones and gasped as it landed, whispering between my legs.

    This was no ordinary mortal. Was he warlock? A sorcerer? Mesmerized, his simple command filled me with a great need to expose myself utterly, and I could only hope that his eye would not be displeased…
