Sweet, misty, musky, haze creeps warm through the window crack, caressing my icy cheek, luring me back.

Your caress sliding gently down to rest softly on the nape of my neck, warm, reassuring. My body falls limp at your touch and I am thankful to share this perfect moment with you as suddenly, I am not alone.
