Tonight we put away our distractions,
So that you could deliver me to my reality,
Moments ago we did not exist,
In worlds that were familiar,
Strangers, now convivial,
Spiritually in commune,
Moments after first reception,
Soon the melding of anatomy,
The melting of inhibitions,
Dressed to initiate…
The touch of flesh, within my hands,
The grasp…refusal to release,
Words right, but soon muted,
The exchange of eyes,
The loss of time,
The closing of space,
To the world…known by us,
We escape the world, our lives,
If but for this opening and closing fleeting moments,
Butter soft,
Creamy supple,
Never felt before, thus I oblige,
Your taste,
Inhaling you to inebriation,
Hours pass,
Obscurity gives way to dusk,
And through exhaustion, aching for continuance,
We live in now.
