…and then your eyes meet mine and the
noise of the TV goes away.
You reach out your hand and brush the hair
back from my face, slowly, slowly.
I look at you. Unmoving.
Still within and
Your fingertips trace the curve of my
cheek… the inner edge of my ear… the side of my neck…
Your hand changes direction and brushes
across my collarbone to my throat… my chin.
You tilt my head up to you and kiss my mouth
gently, gently. Lips barely grazing.
“I love you,” you say and my whole body
hears each word.
Your mouth returns to mine, gently, softly;
lips slipping across one another as my hand steals up to touch your chest and
run across your shoulder, down your arm… You are smooth… soft
I’m lost in you.
You lean up on your elbow, half above me
now and kiss my forehead … my eyelids… my cheek…
Slowly. Hardly moving.
Your mouth leaves a trail of deep, warm delight
on my skin.
Your mouth travels down the side of my neck
like a violin string, like a crystal
Your strong, soft hand strokes so slowly
down my arm… Your fingers circle
my wrist for a moment and then move on, tracing lightly across the backs of my
hand… my fingers.
You lift my hand to your face, turn it over,
and gently place a kiss in my palm. Your lips and cheek graze softly, mothlike,
over my inner wrist and oh…
I’m so lost in you.
Your face nuzzles into the softness of my
flank… your hair glows softly in the flickering light and I touch… I touch...
Silkiness flows under my fingers, each strand
like a live thing.
Your mouth moves like a sleeping baby’s
against flesh; lipping, nuzzling, questing… Your tonguetip traces curves and
lines across my side.
You flow up and over me, like a wave of
light, covering my body in slow fire with your almost-there kisses. Breasts.
Belly. Hips. Thighs…
Lost. I’m lost.
You kiss me there, like a butterfly.
One. Two. Three. Fluttering lips brushes.
One soft, slow lick and a final kiss.
Then you’re swarming up my body to claim
my mouth and your arms are around me and I’m arching to you and reaching and
I’m so lost in you.
Won’t you please come find me?
