one night.

July 10, 2011 § Leave a comment

we’re on a beach somewhere with waves as quiet as our breath.

the stars our only audience as the wind whispers its lullaby to the trees

we’re not speaking, there’s no need to.

you turn to me, you’re eyes telling me the only words you need to say

and i lean in

my lips part, your breath hot on my neck.

you pull my strings, i tug at your shirt

until there’s only skin between us.

when we tumble to the ground, it’s graceful, our prelude

foreboding for what after will be bee-stung lips and a warm after-glow

but now the waves are crashing

and we are too;

 

 

igniting the sand,

making red amidst night’s blackness.

touching each other with our feelings, putting sound to our emotions

until the last deep breath catches

and our passion is spent

on a beach somewhere with waves as quiet as our breath.
