  It begins . ..
soft, tender kisses,
gentle caresses,
whispers in the dark,
hungry kisses,
bold, devouring kisses
traveling lower

the delicious pressure of flesh upon flesh,
the exquisite slide of taut, velvety skin
against moist silky skin
probing, yielding
questing, answering
in the ancient rhythms of the primitive dance.

Your black curls upon the white pillow,
your skin like golden velvet in the soft candlelight
Your arms hold me tight as we climb the precipice and soar to the heavens together.

But you are far now
and the bed is a place of desolation
in the stark winter moonlight
My heart is empty and aching for you
How do I survive this unbearable emptiness?

Do you feel it too?
Will it ever end?

Return to me, my love
and let us share once again
the heavenly sweet joy
of bodies entwined,
souls joined,
and hearts that beat as one.

thanks for all your nice compliments. that's the thing about manic depressives...we feel emotions more intensely than most people. Putting them down on paper has become a form of therapy for me. I'm encouraged by your feedback since this is only about my third effort.
