Shadows of Fire ~ Tryst Fiction

~Tryst Fiction~


Shadows of Fire


There was a time when our fire burnned deep between us.

It was like we would never grow old and tired.

The passion and energy would build higher and higher with each moment we spent together.

Then life happened and your fire was slightly dimmer each year.

Yet, you can still see my passion, if you watch the shadows of my spirit that follow me, as you continue to walk the other way.

Five Sentence Fiction – Shadows

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.


This week: SHADOWS

This is a piece on love
Love of the unexplainable kind
I want to write
So you can feel
What love feels like
Love in the heart & mind
Like sugar on your tongue
Like music in your ears
Colors for the eyes
Gestures that bring you to tears
Love is everywhere
It is my atmosphere
I feel it in his fingers
When he runs them across my skin
I sense it in his voice
When he calls just to hear
my voice again
I love the way
He loves me
And we love each other
I look to him
I know there is no other
A soul that I’d rather share
My entire life with
My moments of joy, sadness, success
And defeat
There is only one for me
It is him, I see
This is a piece
On the love that is mine
It is something so real
Our souls intertwined
The day we fell
Both of us could tell you
But the details are ours
We keep locked in our heart
Holding each other’s hands
‘Till death do us part
With him
Love is everywhere I go
My soul is satisfied
Love tells me so

Sharing Air ~ A Piece for my Husband

Sharing Air

A Piece for my Husband


It was easy for you

To catch my eye

After all these years

You are still the one


We can laugh and let go

Be serious and shy

You make me laugh

Harder than anyone else I know


Friends for fifteen years

Before we even fell in love

But once we did, that was it

We are in love, attached at the hip


You are the one

I think of in the morning

In the evening

And all day long


My best friend

My lover

My husband

You are all this and more


You are the one I run to

To talk, to cry, to yell or get mad

And you put up with me

No matter what I say or do


I know I can be a handful

You are no walk in the park yourself

But no one else in the world I’d rather

Stand by through and no matter what


I love your imperfections

Your masculinity and all

Your deep voice, your hairy chest

Your everything, I love it all!


The day we said our vows

Is the most special day for us

We made a promise to each other

To make it through anything rough


I know that you are my person

Know that I also belong to you

Hand in hand, we will be together

Jake, forever, I will love you

~ J. Lefever ~


For Jake, my wonderful husband

Since the day we first fell, our love has never been a question

I tried to explain it the best I could

I love you more every single day

You are the one I have always searched for…

Daily Reflection on Tryst (01/31/13)



Daily Reflection on Tryst (01/31/13)

 Get Connected


Happy Mid-day Tryst family!! Due to a morning full of running around and making my appointments, I am greeting you with a mid-day reflection! Lately the buzz in my ear has had a common theme. My sweet friends are sharing a need and desire for sweet harmony and loving connection with others. The need for love seems to be in the air! It is a new year, we are all trying to move forward and start fresh, and with that comes some changes. We are trying to find motivation in reaching a goal or going after a dream, we are seeking inspiration to do new things and nourish our creativity, and we are falling in love with the idea that a new love or new friendship sounds really good right now! We are craving some good connection with other’s!

 Having chemistry with someone, either a friend or a significant other, is such an awesome thing! Chemistry works all on its own. We can’t fake or force it. Our hearts and our spirits tell us with whom we are connecting with, and sends signals to our minds and hearts saying, ‘Oh yes, we are really loving and enjoying this person! So glad we have found them and are making memories with them! Thank you world!!’ … We just know, from deep inside, when we have made the connection with another!

 I want you to know that you, each one of you, are a beautiful asset to the universe! This world needs you! Breaking it down more, the people in your family, at your job, and in your circle of friends need you! For those of us in a relationship or marriage, our hubby’s and wives needs us too. You play an important part in the lives of those around you. So take a minute to tell yourself how important you are to those people! Sometimes, even when you don’t know it, you have made a difference in someone’s life, just by being you! By holding open a door, or smiling at someone on the street… you never know what you may have done for another! YOU ARE an ASSET to the UNIVERSE!!

 We are connected to each other. We are connected to this world. We can’t share beauty without each other! remember what I said about Karma? Today, see what connections you make with others. Notice who reaches out to connect with you. If you are single, celebrate yourself someway today by doing something you love or treating yourself to something fantastic! If you are spoken for and share your life with another, put aside the stresses of everyday life, and find a way to connect with your lover! And for all of us friends out there, do you have a friend that needs you? Do you have a friend that you need?


How can we connect with our heart’s favorite peeps today? What can you do to let someone special in your life know that they have you?


Have a beautiful day! ~ Jen
