When Alas, We Both Exhale

by Debi Lyn Monday, August 16, 2021


To kiss your lips is magic; your smile ignites my soul.

The solid gaze of your blue eyes ensures I’ll soon lose all control.


To have your body touching mine - your skin against my skin -

And feel your hands upon my hips when you take me deep within.


A few short moments of ((pulsation)), and once again you’re at it

Causing me to cringe with joy as moaning grows emphatic.


Torment - smooth & heavy; friction building slow...

Ecstatic pleasure peaks until I’m trembling below.


You pull me close and hold me when, alas, we both exhale.

Snuggling til we fall asleep - an ending that can’t fail.
