. . . Untouched
Like a fruit on a flourishing tree
that has not been touch,
they keep their vessels as the Lord required it to be,
pure, free from coitus until the
time that they should cleave to each other as one flesh.
. . . meets First
It happened that night–
beautiful blissful desire fulfilled.
You made me a part of you;
I made you a part of me.
We shared each other through an intimacy
of rapturous excitement; an ecstasy of joy.
That moment, that feeling forever,
etched in my mind.
My body tasted sexual pleasure
as we became one flesh.
With a golden circle on my finger,
you made me your wife;
I made you my husband.
You unlocked the chain of my innocence,
for I supplied you with the key.
I love you then as I love you now;
. . . continues.
. . . ends – Absent Touch
You would have slowly glided your
hand down my back,
enjoying my nakedness.
Your hands would find its way
to my breasts,
caressing them with such warmth.
Your kisses on my neck would
produced such ecstasy of joy.
You ran your fingers through my hair
as you whispered beautiful words into my ear.
You would lay your head on my chest
and listened to the racing of my heart;
it brought you pleasure.
You would take me in your arms,
our nude bodies understanding
the desires of each other.
You would take your hand and
entangled it with mine,
playfully moving our wedding rings around.
You would lay beside me, your breath
brushing the back of my neck.
And there we would stay until the morn broke;
the morn broke today, but you’re not here.
Happy Valentine’s Day. 🙂
