Sun-kissed

Today, I will convert his winter smile to summer laughter
I will transform his cold translucent skin to a warm glowing ember
I will turn his blue frozen lips to a bloodied hungry mess.
We will bathe and swim and he will smell like the ocean’s mist
and his skin will taste like sea salt and sunshine
His grey eyes will reflect the clear blue sky
And for a moment he will thought that his eyes were blue too.
The ocean will whisper to him the secrets of the universe
And I will look in his eyes, hoping he hears and understands.
We will lay in the sand with my head in his chest, as I listen..

Today, I will give a life to his non beating heart.

    This has got me thinking. Are you awakening a long lost love or is he dead? Great imagery by the way. I was at that beach for sure.

    You gotta love Kellie´s prompts.
    This was a great story very vividly described, but you killed the guy!!
    It was an unique take on the prompt. Loved it.

      Thank you charly! Though i would say that it’s more like I’m reviving that dead guy.. 😉
