A clean cut

"It's over", my voicemail says. A clean cut. Communication can’t do it. Voicemail can. Takes a mere cut to break a heart, but more than a broken heart to bleed. Broke my heart. You bleed.

Ringggggg.
Open door.
Bang.
"You’re dead."
Aaah, the power of personal communication. Now that’s what I call a clean cut.

The love of my previous life

Every night, he comes to me. I can't see him, but I feel him. On my neck. Between my shoulder blades. In places I can't mention here. Before I know it, he's gone. Paltry microseconds of pleasure. Tonight, I have to know who he is.

Feather touch.
Nip.
"Sigh."
Bite.
Dang it, he's an ant!

Secret desires

Today's the day. No more promises of tomorrow. No more waiting. Both victims of loveless marriages. And middle age. He's all I want forevermore. Finally, we're together.

Touch.
Caress.
"Moan."
Hands everywhere.
"Darling, look at this beautiful sari-- what the hell is going on?!"
Meet my wife. She just found out I'm a closet gay.
