There I was again…in a place I had not felt nor seen in years. It was a safe and secure place I called the Nook. It happened Friday night after so much laughter and basketball! I laid my head on his left shoulder and placed my left hand on his chest. I could feel his heart beating as I relaxed my head and yet firmly held on to him. Occasionally my left hand who go from his chest to his face and I felt at peace. I was in the Nook. I had not seen nor felt this place since summer 2010. I took a deep breath and then let all my emotions fill me up. After all these years, all these ups and downs, and all the moments I loved to hate him…I could still lay peacefully in the Nook! What’s crazy is…I never thought I would see it nor feel it again. You see…the Nook is not a place you can only view. It must awaken every part of your body for you to truly lie in it. And oh it was so unexpected! It’s 2016! And I had long given up on the Nook! We have been through so much. It seemed we left that place…never to return until Friday October 28, 2016! At first, I did not recognize it but then I began to doze off. Fighting sleep…I would open my eyes and smile. There he was…smiling and holding me too. Nothing about it seemed awkward. We just were….us. I felt a shriver go up my spine and my heart danced all at the same time. I…was…in…the….NOOK! And that in itself was orgasmic! That’s right…just laying in the Nook brings a rare kind of pleasure. One where love, trust, and honesty exists! That’s it…the Nook is an honest and loving place. No need to hide your feelings here…because you can’t! Every word is felt before ever spoken….because of deep emotions seeping through your skin. And so we laid in the Nook and my heart was overjoyed…because what I had long given up on…had revisited me when I least expected it. And it was there and only there that I found SERENITY in this moment in time…with him by my side. ~KJM on Serenity Sunday. It’s so rare that I write on both Serenity days but the Nook is just that special? Love you a little bit more baby (the Ex Factor)?
