Awaited awakening

loose lipped, tight tipped

Injecting deep into me

formaldehyde of jealousy


 Rhythmic warm chill

presses on pulsating throat

sticky skin anoints

soothing balm of obssession



Surrender fills silence

thighs pillow dormant anger

your cunning apology

having resentfully missed me


tendrilled fingertips weave

careless laced crimson strands

tentative anxious bite

into embalmed grey shoulder


Revived and resurrected bride

absorbing your milky zenith

reclaims me spellbound

tearing the cobwebs inside

"having resentfully missed me" - that speaks volumes.

a beautiful thread of seduction.

Crumbs - what a homecoming - that's one way to get over jet lag ;)

A graphic but compelling read. You should write a book and call it '50 hues of Hughes'!
