burning desire, dont blink
Anny McNeilus 1982 (Minnesota)
Every inch of me burning red with heat-
Waiting anxiously for you to treat...
My body is soaked in anticipation of yours-
Our hunger for each other reaching deep down to our cores..
Your body, so temptingly, moving towards mine-
Your eyes pouring over me as if seeing something Divine...
Your hands start at my face and slowly caress their way down-
Slowly dropping to the floor my black silk gown...
Hands and lips moving over me as if at any moment I may break-
Do not let go my Love, for I am yours to take...
Let me take you to a peak of ecstasy-
Let my hands and lips have their chance to see...
Allow my body to swallow you whole-
The heat surrounding you, reaching to your soul...
Swimming through a sea of eternal love and desire-
Feeling the burning heat-but not fearing the fire...
Our bodies pressed together as one-
Barely noticing the rising morning sun...
Adoringly we gaze into each others eyes-
Loving the way you are gripping my thighs...
Basking in the heat rising from our embrace-
Wishing I could forever feel my pulse race...
At last we climax-both clinging to the other so tight-
Quietly, the world suddenly seems right...
We lay together, catching our breathe-
Both so infatuated-and yet scared to death...
Not knowing what the other is thinking-
Our biggest fear-all of this disapearing by simply blinking...
