She looked to the sky
and asked the moon why
his crestfallen face
drooped from outer space?
With a sigh he replied
"It is my heart.
For I am so far apart from my one true love.
She is the sun that smiles from up above.
No matter how hard I try
or how fast I fly,
I'm always missing her light.
Seems I am destined to live
forever in night."

The gentle bite of an early autumn day.
A languidly rising sun shining through a shroud of morning mist.
The way it gleamed off the old maples, ripe with dewy jewels.
Leaves crunching and shuffling underfoot
as I made my way across Johnston Green.
I remember that moment.
It hangs in my memory like a work of art.
A fragment of time I yearn to feel again, but can only admire from a distance.

Review of The Hitcher by Charming Man

If you've not yet been charmed by the literary prowess of Mr. Charming Man, stop whatever you're doing, put the kettle on* and pick up your Kindle.  Charming  Man has several titles under his belt, each one unique yet all focused around the central theme of chance encounters. His latest release, The Hitcher, is a great place to start.

The Hitcher takes us back to England in the late 1970's to meet Steve. Steve is a university student on summer holiday when he is tasked with the job of preparing his parents' summer property for new renters.  He embarks on a road trip which turns into much more than he bargained for. In a tantalizing twist of fate he finds himself in a cat and mouse game with a sexy and very cheeky young woman. 

Charming Man's descriptive storytelling transports the reader straight into the scene. I could almost feel the warm summer wind rushing past me as I became a passenger in Steve's car.  This erotic short even comes complete with a soundtrack, further adding to the full sensory journey the author takes us on. I found myself reminiscing about that crazy summer of '79, and I was only just born!

This is a tale of fate, summer love, and not to mention very steamy sex. The lighthearted sarcastic banter between the two characters makes you fall in love and leaves you hoping for a sequel!
