you move like night,
engulfing my body in your being.
your fingers climb my thighs
as if to rip the pants from my skin.
i pull at your shirt and
kiss your lips. my hands explore
under your shirt, caressing your skin.
heart beats rise. the only sound
beneath the stars, is our breath-
aching, longing for one another.
trying to take it slow, you stop
yourself from giving in.
i would’ve stopped then.
i won’t stop now.
i want to be in engulfed in your intimacy,
i want you inside, every part of me.
tell me then, if i’m where you want to be.
next time we kiss and you
move, to pull from me..
i will pull you closer, pull you in,
let this spark ignite,
let the spark transform to flame.
breathe me in, take my body as yours.
let my hands heighten your senses,
more than intimacy will be attached to my name.
then you can tell me what it is you want.
all this time, i can’t get that night
out of my mind.
