Remember

Remember that time

We lay still

Together,

Naked

And holding each other?

Remember how

The sweat

Clung to our bodies

As the sun shone

Through the window

And onto the floor

Where we were

Entwined?

Remember the way

Our eyes locked

And the world

Slowed down or sped up,

Or did whatever it did,

While our moment

Froze us

Into place

Making time irrelevant?

Remember how

It felt

When our lips touched

The first time,

And how it has felt

Each time since?

Remember how

Our fingers searched

For their mates,

Knotting themselves together,

Unwilling to let go?

Remember how

Each goodbye

Feels like a tiny death,

And each reunion is a rebirth?

Remember how

Each evening brings

Dreams of each other,

And each morning

A bittersweet awakening

Out of those dreams,

With hope for

The next kiss?

Remember those

Whispered words

In the dark,

Skin to skin,

Breathless and excited,

Wanting

The moment to never end?

 

I remember it all too.

Sweaty rush

The sweaty rush

Of adrenaline

And fevered chills,

As our bodies

Ignite

Upon naked contact,

Exchanging breaths-

Your exhale

Becoming my inhale,

As if sharing

One set of lungs,

One heart,

With four arms,

And four legs

Twisting and writhing

Into one body.

As the sweat

Traces lines

Down our bodies

To the floor

Beneath us,

Your hot skin

Arches

And bends

To meet my touch,

My lips,

Our bodies

Oblivious

To time

And the vanishing space

Between us.

Shivering together,

In the naked calm

Of the moment,

Collapsing

Into feeble arms,

Embracing each other,

Differently,

Perfectly,

In the new moment

Of our shared creation,

We finally exhale

All

That had been inside,

As a prelude

Of all that is left

Still to ignite

And burn

Intensely.
