When we sleep, Joseph wraps his arms around me. I am thankfully accustomed to spooning, but this is different. He does not let go and roll over. His arms enfold me all night, shifting position with me. I'm like a security blanket or a beloved stuffed animal.

Something to be cherished.

I'm a restless sleeper; when I'm half-awake, I watch him, his face at rest. I'm tempted to run a hand down his arm, or across his jawline, or across his bare chest... but I don't want to wake him.

Beauty. I am desired by beauty.

And I drift back to sleep. Safe.

Note - this should be a given - I am so not reading my friends-page today. Heh. So point me to anything you want me to see.

I'm having a lot of fun with these prompts. You can give me more here. And no, I'm not using "fucktabulous" or "waffletastic" :P

Also - sponsor other bloggers! rhiannonhero, satia, theferrett, and zoethe!

I'm having lots of fun. Then again, this is only hour 2.
