Two of us, we one world in us create.
Timelessness, a feeling we want not to escape.
Not minding how seconds bleed, seemlessly into hours;
Our exploration, decadent; our time spent,
Meandering paths on skin, journeys in memory well preserved.
The lazy summer days completed, wrapped in your arms hold.
Connection of body, mimics engagement to heart.
I’m safe; limbs meshing with yours, arms hold.
Your each finger wandering my skin, I anticipate,
In kind, returning the favour; your body I sate.
We two beings, unity forming; while it pours, rain showers.
Rain the melody; bliss an aspiring presence.
Leaving fire in my path, past your hip bones swerve,
Wetness of your mouth past my stomach, bold.
Can’t protect my heart but wisdom of touch you impart,
No hiding; you perceive my naked soul, so I’m bold.
Enthralling euphoria of twilight; I burn, don’t wait.
Kissing shoulder blades; your cheekbones carved of slate,
Breasts, hands take your fill; lips rapturous devour.
Stroking limbs, both are hands spark, pleasure sensual.
Evocative areas found, your body with desire I observe;
Tongue tracing small of my back; gratified, I won’t withhold.
Laughter, exchange; the language of touch, adoringly imparted.
Revelling in silken skin, with you as no other; nothing I withhold.
Our minutes keep stretching; nipping skin, heat burns, captivated.
Bodies combined, as moths to the flame; cannot hunger sate.
Sure hands, wandering mouth; inbetween, all around, retains prowess,
Your body never leaving me; your kisses across fragile skin ascend,
Scared to be known, body, spirit, heart; you’ve me without reserve.
Tender eyes see through me, arms defined, clasp me tight, enfold;
Ages later, we’re dressed, faces on; a soul wrenching kiss; you depart,
My lover safekeep; our lives in each other, now enfold.
