LOVERS AND OTHERS

I took an old love to bed...
He was not as I remembered…
He was better!
I ran into him at Borders.
Instantly I felt a connection with him again.
I don’t know why I gave up on him years ago…
He had style, he was articulate and told great stories…
But on whims I moved on to others…
Intrigued by something new, something different.
Now, after more than decade…
And having found him again…
I wasn’t going to go home without him…
And so I brought home--
Stephen King and Duma Key.
Oh Stephen! You're the best!
More on my one true love, Stephen next week…
For now, I’m working on another submission…
And struggling finding my way…
On a new edition—at least for my laptop—of Word.
So?
Anyone else love Stephen King?
Or have read Duma Key?
Or is working on a submission?

Always, Em-Musing

I haven't but I thought this analogy rocked! Too funny- sounds like Stephen is a good time. I should pick him up next time im out;)

I do love Stephen King! But I haven't read him since college. I'll have to check out Duma Key.

I've never taken Stephen to bed, but maybe I will.

Hi, just wanted to stop by and thank you for commenting over at Talli's blog when I guest posted. Thanks for sharing your story, you had me cracking up!
Never read Stephen King or Duma Key, but you've piqued my interest =)

Love this!

Stephen's more of a daytime kinda bloke for me. Not sure how we'd get along together in bed!

Not since The Body (Stand By Me) but maybe I will give him another chance!
