The Elevator Scene - Chapter 2 of REVIVAL by M.K. Gilher

I hear a weird creaking noise and the lights flicker. I'm jostled about before the elevator jerks to a halt in mid-flight and the lights go out. My fellow elevator patrons gasp and grumble. Random lights appear as people pull out their cellphones. In the commotion of the crowded elevator, I'm heaved back onto my Italian-shoed stranger even more. I feel strong hands wrap around my hips.

"Love, Color Me Free"

"Love, Color Me Free" If I were an artist and all the colors of the rainbow were arranged on my pallet, there still would not be enough shades to paint the beauty within you.... The beautiful variations of red when passion reaches beyond surface limitations.... The amazing deep plums when our romantic rendezvous flow into the soft silky happiness of two becoming one..... The shades of pink when our words become the vision of all the love we feel.... The joyful shades of yellow when our conversation sparks the energy guiding our lips to form into the most loving smile..... These beautiful colors now painting a romantic destiny as sweet whispers from the heart echo "Love, Color Me Free" An echo once more, Love Color Me Free from the pain of past words spoken and all the enchanting promises broken.... Color Me Free to absorb the delightfully brilliant shades of all...

Echo

"Echo" Echoes from a beautiful memory offer flirtatious melody to the sounds heard by the broken heart.... Slowly the sound is translated into his sweet words of encouragement, leading the willing heart down a road brightly illuminated with the essence of hischarm...... The melodies from those echoes tenderly caress the spirit now roaming free in the destiny of a reality waiting to be...... Soft echoes coaxing the spirit above blocked paths..... At heights of the desired joy, to warm forever adoration from the man to the woman for the girl to the boy...... Alluring sounds adding peace to what was hostile ....... Gracefully along this new journey love stretching endlessly for miles uponmiles....... BySabrina Daniels Forever Love, Eternally Yours

Beautiful

"Beautiful" Light breaking through the dark like the morning sun peeking through the end of night..... Slowly the dawn appears bursting brilliant colors across heavens sky.... Eyes open gracefully to a brand new day filled with a happiness felt deep..... Absorbing the warm glow of sunshine, watching as the world becomes His pallet... The morning air flow past the trees and the flower petals spreading even more joy to each heart....... Caught up in the rapture of another day graced.... Amazed at all that is available to see, now giving thanks for the beauty shared by the One who can't be seen...... BySabrina Daniels Forever Love, Eternally Yours
