airing that fire

before I feel you,
I feel the tease of your breath
on my neck-
I close my eyes
suck in my breath,
at the soft touch of you on my shoulder.
you understand my shyness-
your movements are unhurried;
your passion generates fire in me
in that mist of desire
my meager protest disappears
I turn towards you eagerly...

in the aftermath,
you snuggle into my back
and say, "that wasn't difficult, was it?"
cherishing the closeness-
smiling I fall asleep
dreaming of you, of us.

Hands-down beautiful. A hint of erotica, but feeling the love.

Sharing your sensuality with the world. Nice. (Are you going to enter the Silly Poetry Contest? Your scathing wit is highly anticipated.) :)

this was romantic. I like the word shyness it shows hesitation and anticipation.
then eager jumps in...
then there is love in snuggle and sleep
this is just right.
