Tender intertwining


A gentle glide of bodies
hands that twine with mine
a bloody pulse of radiating heat
that starts the warming flush
Skin against sweet, sweaty skin
nothing too kinky
just a tender intertwining
souls longing to be touched
Lip to lip
we'll tell each other secrets
heart to heart
lay ourselves bare
Oh, what a whisper of a moment
that lingers in the air
a flicker in the dark
my hands longing
to catch and to hold
But as it enters
I let it go
And tuck its memory
in the secret corner of my mind
to warm my skin
another day

This is in response to Three Word Wednesday

  2. Love is flowing here. The best word is Sheilagh's, "sensuous." I love when women write with abandon about real intimacy, since for so long it was taboo for the "fairer sex" (whatever the hell that means!) to even whisper about such things. Lovely work, Tracy. Thanks for leaving the link! Amy
