Featured Review on this writing by Danni Lee

Just something came to me at work one night. Oh did I mention I work as a mortician?

The room was brightly lit as I entered and lit the scented candles. This was such a special moment, the second before I see my love for the first time. I calmed my breathing and tried to stop the shaking of my hands before I turned to see you laying there on that cold hard metal table. So lovely with your cold pale skin and lifeless eyes.

I approach you slowly not wanting to ruin the moment as I run my eyes over your long flowing hair and sensual curves. Gently I touch your cheek with my fingertips and caress your jaw lovingly. I lean down to let my hot breath play over your lips before I steal a single kiss, a promise of things to come.

I wash your flesh tenderly and brush out your long brown hair. A little rouge to bring color back to your cheeks and a slight touch of lipstick to your lips. Your eyes take the most time, they are so lovely and glassy like two marbles. I am the artist and your body is my canvas as I bring life back to you.

Tomorrow your friends and family will come to see you one last time, but tonight is for us, my love. We will enjoy this night together laying in each other’s embrace until the sun rises and you must leave me. I will not feel sadness or bitterness at our parting because I know that soon I will have another lover.

I love this, I know others might find it a little creepy, but I can feel you and the love you share. You bring a light to the darkness of death, how wonderful it is that someone could do this thing. Make them beautiful for their families with all the love you can. Thank you so much.
