The Center of Desire

I run my hand
over the fabric
of your skin
moving my hand
over its textures
and plains
your form

a raging want
burns through
my need,
I am transfixed
and aroused
your words
clasp me
into the center
of your desire

separated I despair
for only a moment,
this growling beast
this fiery lust
eats to the heart
of my core,
returning, you
tease playing
with my passion

our first movement
transcended shadow
and shade,
the ignition
and spark reflect
in the corners
of your eyes
enflaming all
that I am

in a burning white
blaze, I consume
all that surrounds
I am lifted higher
like ash
into a forbidden place
in time

returned to this plain
I float lighter
and freer,
I run my hands
through the fabric
of your being
touching down
onto a place
of peace

Phew! If I smoked I'd have to suck the life out of a packet of fags now! Woow This poem exudes passion and arousal. It just spills out desire and love - tastefully done. .

Now where's my husband - Russell - come here. He he

Your comment made me laugh, I used to smoke but its been nearly three years since I gave up !! I am really glad the feelings were interpreted how I tried to put it over, I like to leave something to the imagination giggle but every now and then I write one I just cant post, they are sometimes a little too naughty

thanks for the read and the comment, I find it funny the only two comments I got were from women maybe the boys didn't like this one ;) LOOK out Russell hahaha
