Here with me..

BJ was landing in 45 minutes, I checked my watch. again. I pressed my face up on the office window as if I could see the airport from here. I sat in traffic. Bored. Nervous. Silly me. Of course the flight is late. *YAWN* I was up all night cleaning house and applying self tanner. I am hanging around arrivals like a red-cap porter. I wonder. *SPICE!!* I am caught offguard and suddenly embraced by a Random Hot Guy. [Okay, not a RHG, actually a cute pilot, worthy of a post, but not today...] *Spice..?* I shove off RHG, brush off my suit and curse under my breath as BJ walks over to me.
He's here! He's here! I am soooo in my happy place! He tastes familiar. He feels just right. He smells like my memories. Our bodies still fit together perfectly. Take me now Lord. Nunc dimittus. I don't ever want to get out of this bed. I know I made reservations but.. Right now I am studying him like I have an exam next week. Maybe we should shower. Maybe we should eat. Aren't you gonna introduce me to your friends? Jus now.. Come back to bed honey.. just for a minute.. Amidst the entanglement, one moment is clear. He stood smoking on the verandah in a pair of yellow striped boxer shorts, glass of orange juice in hand. He took a sip and said 'Spice, you make me happy. I love it here.' I smiled, buttered my toast and pondered it like Mary, deep in my heart. If only I knew how to make these great moments last forever..
Too soon I was on the road to the airport again. Driving slowly this time. He made me pull over. His voice cracked and his face was wet. Are those tears BJ? Don't. I couldn't stay. Lime in the terminal. I wasn't able. I hugged him. I kissed him. I inhaled the sweet scent of him one last time. He touched my face. I had to go. Emotions too heavy for the morning commuters. Push the door I'm home at last... All I see is you.. And I want to thank you for giving me the best days of my life.

Long distance things rough but they can work if the parties want it too. Just the in between kinda gets iffy sometimes.
