Let’s make a pact
let these shadows hold us
swaddled in secrecy
and breathing quickly
I see you draw in close to me
sense those lips loosening
my foundation questioning
the forcefield of your sly grin
and the delicacy of those fingers
upon me

Let’s make a pact
let this moment be our blueprint
to not accept a fading
or a softening of this urgency
I feel that magnetic pull strengthening
see the bond between us as pure light
drawing my every cell back into you
the atmosphere of your swelling heartbeat
and the longing in those murmurs
you’re whispering

Let’s make a pact
as these shadows hold us
close the night in around and bury us
breathless and beating hard…

A poem of heated passion in a moment of time, well caught in its intensity and sensuality. Sadly blue prints become old and faded but your optimism in this well crafted poem brings hope. I enjoyed this and thank you
