In One Moment

I see you.
You see me.
Our eyes meet,
Time stops.
In a moment, just one second,
I see all the possibilities
and longings of a lifetime
being met in you.

I imagine your hand in mine
I see us eating together
Laughing, lots of laughing

I feel your fingers
Trace down my throat
Your lips devouring mine
Legs intertwined
Burning skin on burning skin
Hands everywhere, squeezing
Nails scratching

Your hand wrapping in my curls
Pulling back, hard
Breathing heavy, raspy, unsteady
I’m wet, so wet
Dripping down my legs
You lift me up
I wrap myself around you

Strong arms holding me up
Now the wall to my back
Grip my wrists and hold them
above my head
Then it’s you
Inside me, taking me
Loving me, wholly

Our voices in chorus
Moans turn to whimpers turn to sighs
Yes, you are mine and I am so yours
I would follow you anywhere
Our eyes join and at that very instant
Passion explodes.
We live, in that moment, together.

Then, you blink.

And it’s just you seeing me.
And me seeing you.
As you

  3. Wow!!!! What a magical and intensely romantic piece, My Dear!!! So delightfully sensual and vivid!! What a wonderful way to spend one second – yet sad too! But then there is always the next set of eyes to get lost in – one hopes?
