A crisp lavender expanse of down and fluff.
Warmed by body heat and scented like my skin.
A 54×75 sanctuary where my two worlds dream.
Side by side in unwitting repose.
They will never meet here,
Merely know the feel of resting here with me.
I bear lone witness to this strange changing of the guard.
I am the treasure they share.
They each claim a place in my lilac-colored world.
The warm void between sheets the tender turf,
Where my intimacy runs free with Son and Consort.
I am the constant.
I am the Mother-Mistress.
I am the gravity that draws them here.
I am their common ground.
You climb into my bed in the wee hours of the morning.
Your warmth seeps into me as you snuggle close.
I can feel a sense of safety fill you as you settle in next to me.
I can feel the pull of my love,
like the gravity of the sun holding my universe together.
I stroke your hair and watch as you breathe deeper, relaxing into my touch.
Remembering many nights together.
The texture of your hair is coarser now.
Not the baby fine silk you had when you were three.
But the feel of it transports me back in time.
To every moment I rocked you to sleep in my arms or held you close to me.
You are my reason, my sanity, my tether to this world.
You are the reason I fight, I strive, I grow.
You are my heart and soul, the definition of my love.
You are my son.
I leave the door unlocked for you and climb between scented sheets.
My body tingling, anticipating your touch.
I try to sleep, knowing you are on your way to me.
But I think of your caress and abandon thoughts of rest.
My hands roam my body too hungry to wait for you.
I lose myself in the sea of my own desire.
You open the door and find me in passion’s throes.
A wolfish smile upon your face as your hand replaces mine.
I am shocked back to reality by your kiss.
And delivered to passion once again.
You are the one who stokes my fires, who drives me beyond my brink.
You are my balance, my motivation, my laughter, my release.
You are the visitor that drinks from the wellspring of my heart.
You are my lover.
