Free Write Friday! “You Called Me Love”

The Prompt: Ponder This

Love was just a word
Just a flick of a tongue
A quick exhale
It only meant fleeting

And then you happened
And you’d call me ‘love’
And it made me feel like
I was burning under my skin

No one had ever gotten beneath the surface
Until you, your love, you nestled inside me
Wriggled your way through the cracks
I thought I’d kept well hidden

You planted your lips as seeds against the
Soil of my fluttering field heart and blossomed
A brilliantly beautiful thing you were,
And you’d call me “love”

My favorite past-time was running the
naked skin of my palms along the bared
Flesh of your back, kneading my fingers into
The softness that camouflaged the sinewy strength against your spine

No, it was looking into those eyes,
The ones that always drank me in as if I were the only thing to behold,
the way they turned my pulse into an impulsively pulsating rhythm uncontrollable.

Or maybe it was just loving you back.
Yes, loving you back as hard as I was capable
Until my knuckles ached from holding on
And my throat was raw from the strain of saying the words so much they became my exhale

Love never felt like butterflies to me
It was only just a word, fleeting
And then you happened
And you’d call me ‘love’

I swear there were wings inside
Beating gently against my ribcage
Eager to find their way to you
every time you called me ‘love’.

So it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted for #FWF it feels good to be back! I actually started a story for last weeks prompt but I haven’t had a chance to finish it yet, keep an eye out for a really creepy story though 🙂

I hope you guys enjoyed this, it was random as always. I look forward to reading what everyone else posted in response to this prompt as well!

  1. The way you speak the words rumbles my chest and I cannot help but feel it so deeply. I can only aspire to reach the levels of your gift. In awe…as always. Just amazing, love. Amazing.

    1. Kellie, you always have such encouraging words for me and I am always overwhelmed. Thank you for your kindness and for giving such awesome opportunities to explore our creative sides 🙂

  2. It was an amazing experience. I listened first, then read the words. So much power of expression. Thank you for sharing, especially the reading — your verbal punctuation added to the strength of the words.

  3. Written with reverence. Filed with metaphors that dig deep (so to speak!) and plow the depths (again!) of the intuitive emotions of abiding affection for just one other. I love the way your voice resonates with the words you wrote.
