young girl sleeps in naked form. eyes watch. candles flicker.
shadows dance a midnight secret. truth to be told or his hands just kept still?
girl from next door sleeps on pillow below. a fantasy tempting but no-one will know.
her long soft hair flows through the bed. ends of torment lead to unknown.
not much time before his secret explodes. new dreams ferment & loving hands roam.
a gentle light kisses her shoulder. a touch of caress from a skin much older.
friend of a friend lies silently beneath. this child of an angel who followed her lead.
so simple to taste her, her lips sweet formation.
but resistance is kept, pleasured stimulation.
enough for tonight just to sit & watch her.
a lingering pressure & a soft delicate hand.
kiss goodnight to her gently, his minds eye engorged.
candle is taken & darkness withholds her.
a blanket smile across her form & slowly, carefully, the old man withdraws.
