Disillusionment encompasses the night. Your warm breath tickles my ear, Firm hands caress my skin leaving no part of my body untouched. All other distractions, extraneous characters, everything else is irrelevant. It is just you, with your smooth dark skin, comforting embrace, and those entrancing brown eyes, and me, with my silky pale skin, soft curves, and sad but hopeful eyes. It is just us and our apprehension in this room, isolated from reality. You indulge in my coquettish laugh, and I take solace in the warmth of your touch. The contours of my body complement yours as we both try to savor this feeling of ecstasy. But the hourglass runs out, and this moment is fleeting. The illusion is shattered when the protagonist reappears, and I am demoted to understudy. I am left to replay this scene in my disillusioned mind hoping to one day again feel the softness of your lips pressed against my bare skin, but until then, I will replay these events, ignoring this void in my soul and embracing the momentary nirvana.
