Poetry · Writing


Lightly trailing my fingers
Down your cheek.
And across your
Bottom lip,
You bite lightly on
The tip of my finger.
I see the fire burning
In your eyes.


Goosebumps raise,
Along your arms.
A tiny moan, escapes
From your mouth.
I see the shivers
Course through
Your body.


Your hand presses
Me closer.
So close that our
Breaths become
So close, I can
Feel your heartbeat
Through my chest.


I’ve waited for this
Moment for so long.
I can hardly believe
It’s here.
I yearn for you,
Like I’ve never yearned
For anyone before you.
I thirst for you,
Like one who’s been
Trapped in the desert.


The memory of this
Night will keep me sated,
Long after you’re gone.
Though the distance
May separate us,
I know it won’t break us.
So Tattoo my body
Everywhere your lips touched,
Because I can take the pain.
