under the covers of night moves

Softly she moans in her sleep and places
both slender hands beneath her pillow
her lips return to the
pleasing curves that intrigue
me as the moon breaks through clouds
and shines through the panes
her face the color
of ghostly white
lights a fantasizing
candle

I lie awake as the night ages
slowly yet I feel the need
to not be alone as the
urge to touch raises my hand
to her warmth
along the way
we join and she moans
again

Moving her hips against my pressing
desire she rolls away from me
her curving back remains
at my chest although
she is in halfsleep
I press my lips to her
ear and breathe in her
dream to my lungs
Now her dream
joins mine and we
dream as one
entwined

In the morning over coffee she asks
did you wake me up much during the
night?
And as I watch her nighty
lay softly where my hand
spent the dark hours
I say ....No sweety
did you ? And she holds that
questioning look for a moment
and smiles
And so do I.........

A warm cup of joe is good, but there are some thing in the wee hours that are so much warmer! Good one, Ed. Very provocative!

Romantically wonderful. Love the idea of two dreaming as one. Enjoyed this and passing it on.

I loved this. It stirred me immediately. One can easily imagine this moment and how it feels to be involved. Very nice.
