Your breath. Its smell. Its sound.
Your bosom — heaving against my breast.
Your hair, scattered on my face.
Your smile as you pull yourself away
Never letting me go.
Your body as it touches my soul.
Your skin — my sweetest, silken dream.
Your touch, the cool sea breeze.
Your fingers as you clasp, caress.
Never let me go.
Your eyes. Their warm black depths.
Your tears — on my face as you rest.
Your lips, quivering against mine.
Your silent sobs as you push away,
Pulling me closer to you.
You. Your love. Your pain.
Our hands — and our fingers entwined.
One life, as two lives cease.
Your thoughts. Sheer happiness.
Pull me close.
