  You clutch me
to stop me
from leaving and say
Let's talk about this.

I'm sitting in an armchair
with you
on your knees in front of me,
head in my lap,
arms holding my waist and
You say, "I love you, don't leave me"

Too little too late, I should say,
Deep down,
I really wanted you
to stop me
from leaving.
My head says
Don't believe him.
while you still
have the courage.
Being alone
is better
than living with a
faithless man

My heart says
Don't throw it all away
Give him a chance
He's never done this before
and you know
still love him
how badly
he's hurt you.

I feel as if I'm being torn asunder,
not knowing whether to follow
my heart
or my head.
or leave--
A life changing decision

I've always been
a slave
to my emotions
so why change now?
Oh well,
I sigh,
as I give in and decide to stay
at least
for a little while.

I've never been able
to resist you
with your
dark eyes,
curly black hair
and boyish charm.

You take me in your arms
and give me
hungry, desperate,
thought-stealing, soul-searing kisses,
trailing a path of fire from my lips
down my neck
to my breasts
and lower.
Our clothes can't come off fast enough
as your sweet intimate kisses
trail lower
between my thighs
and you give me
the most exquisite pleasure
a man can give a woman,
filling me with shimmering, endless longing
and delight,
heat and dampness
and an empty, aching yearning
to be filled, body and soul.

I can't get enough of you,
thinking this could be the last time
I'm desperate for more of your
more of your mouth,
more of your hands,
I want you deep inside every part of me
and hold you as if I'll never let go,
feasting on you
like a
beggar at a banquet.

You make love to me
so gently and tenderly
with a penitent reverence
I've never experienced
loving me as if
your life
depended on it,
healing me
your touch

You are a thief,
stealing away my thoughts,
my resistannce,
my inhibitions,
and my last shred of self-control.

"Let me inside you" you say
and I know
I am lost
As your delicious velvety hardness
slides into my silky wet
and you move
inside me
in that
slow,sensual rhythmn
I know so well.

Time stands still,
there's no future,
no past,
only this blissful moment

The world recedes
and there is no one
but us two
alone in the world
and all thought is obliterated
by pure emotion
and blissful sensation.

Sensing that I'm nearing the peak
you pick up the pace and
passion coils inside me like a spring
until it explodes
like fireworks
I am borne
on a tidal wave
of ecstasy.

I feel you stiffen and shudder in my arms
and liquid heat fills me,
feeling as if you have
your soul into mine.

My heart is full
and I'm filled
with a joy
that feels like anguish,
relief and fear
flood my emotions
until they overflow and hot tears
stream down my cheeks.

I have cried
an ocean
of tears
over you,
what are a few more?

Who did I think
I was kidding anyway?
You are imprinted on my soul
and I'll never be able to cut you
out of my heart.

Living without you
would simply

You hold me tenderly,
wipe away my tears
tell me not to cry,
and promise
to cheat on me

I want
so desperately
to believe you.

I won't share you.

If you ever
betray me again,
I promise you
It will be
