Steam Dry

The resort fireplace is huge
Logs crackle in the flames
Heat radiates outward
Melting snow from gloves and boots

I sit across from Vic

His eyes are dreamy
I swim in them as he speaks
Giggling at the right times

My face full of light
Heart radiating outward
Floating in my chair
Melting into my shoes

As the moisture warmed
Evaporating from our clothes
We warmed to each other
Pheromones riding the steam

Our cabins were opposites
On each end of the long road
But even far apart
We never felt closer

Dry, cozy, warm in bed
The same stars twinkled
Over his head and mine
Bringing me sweet dreams
