Touch

You smile at me, Your fingers glide across my neck, A sound escapes my throat, You pull me into your embrace, I feel it deep within my gut, You pull yourself back and cradle my face, A grin spreads across my mouth, Anticipating and melting, You draw me in with your slow, deep kisses, Exploring…
