10 (who?)
It wasn’t sudden; it was calculated. We circled each other for months, waiting for the right moment to attack. Sharpening our claws. Looking for weaknesses. Finding none.

The first bolt of lightning. Our lips met. Electricity. Charged, we fought.

The low rumble of thunder. Your skin melted into mine like a poison. The primal drumbeats of the rain on the roof, driving us onward. Beads of moisture. We glowed from within, we darkened the sky.

The wind ripped the breath from my mouth. The wind, your lips. Both.

The ocean, frothing and churning. Ships crushed to splinters upon our shores. Lines of fire from my nails, your tongue. Static. We crackled, we blazed.

Burning into each other, we were a summer storm.

Aus and I were doing quick writing prompts again. -shrug-

gah! This is intense. It's astounding
to me that you can make the emotions so
strong and... clear with so few words!

this is amazing.

You know I love this. xD

Your metaphors are simply amazing. Heartstopping. THUNDEROUS. BAH. I love how some of the sentences are just fragments--it makes it sharper, more violent. Which is perfect.

Love it. :heart:

O dearest scintillating star of my wondering eyes, how I treasure these sweet honeyed words that drip like rain from your roselike crimson lips. I can do you, my most dearly beloved of soul and mind, no greater or humbler honor than to lay my heart at your ivory and perfect feet. -bows-

I cannot utter words of such beauty as those that weave the silk of your skin, the black waterfall of your cascading tresses, the crystalline depths of your intelligent gaze. O, Goddess of my heart, the language to describe you is a poetry that my pen knows not!
