Cara Michaels’ Picture Choice: 1

Title: Entwined

Wrap around me love, and I will want no more
For ‘tis in your arms my faith is reborn
My heart beats only for your touch
Pounding, straining, reaching
I believe the heavens themselves within my grasp
Then fall from the sky, cradled in your arms

Let me tumble to Earth, a fallen star captured
The heat of your breath stroking my skin
Finding pleasure in coarse threads
The silken slide of cotton and flesh
A base divinity that sends us soaring ever higher
To realms even gods cannot touch

Think not what comes next, but feel only now
The bliss of joining made bittersweet
We will part and we know it
But the night is still young
Wrap around me love, ever again
And entwined, I will want no more


Cara Michaels is the author of the Gaea’s Chosen sci-fi romance series and host of the #MenageMonday flash fiction challenge.



  1. That was just beautiful, Cara.


  2. Thank you, Sarah. Stepping out of my comfort zone with this one, :)

  3. This was awesome. I could literally feel every touch, simply amazing. Perhaps you should step out of your comfrt zone more often. :P

    1. Thanks, Miranda. It's been a long time since I felt the urge to write this way. :)

  4. Cara, this is so lovely! It's rife with beautiful phrases and images. I think your better reconsider the boundaries of your comfort zone! :)

    1. Thanks so much for the vote of confidence, Ruth. :)

  5. You never cease to amaze, Cara. This is beautiful work. It sounds great when read aloud! I've said it before and I'll probably say it again-- I'm glad I get to go before you instead of having to follow your act!

    1. Thank you so much, Jeff. A compliment of the highest order, given the caliber of your own writing.
