One last innocent glance before I drink from the liqueur glass

As I would bite into the ripeness of plums;
so, would I attempt to pave my way into your breastβ€”
your breath would catch
as night moves closer to the inception of dawn;
so much of you is already written
into my soul.
A smile, a glimpse into hurrying possibilities;
the long, lush
and riotous reeds of your untamed desire would part,
igniting the skyβ€”
the contour of your torso is nothing less than enigmatic;
it requires attention,
wind-blown kisses tinged with a willingness to explore;
for when we touch
even in the slightest, hushed and most insignificant way,
I am lifted.

      Sanaa I hope I never meet you in person, I would surely melt as soon as you start speaking! While you can bring a lush sensuality to even the most mundane subjects, in this I was wondering if you have an actual love or if this was dreamscape. Clearly this was a foolish notion on my part! You know about the importance of touch, you are grounded in the body, and this ending is just… wow.

      1. Sanaa says:

  4. I love the shift from innocence to naughtiness in the title, Sanaa, and I especially love the lines:
    β€˜the long, lush
    and riotous reeds of your untamed desire would part,
    igniting the sky’
    and
    β€˜wind-blown kisses tinged with a willingness to explore’.

    Humans do tend to be much more adventurous in their actions which I suppose why we think we are more important than other creatures. Yes, we have excelled in touching over the centuries and sharing gifts is another so we do have some good points!
