My Sweet Man
My heart races with the anticipation of your arrival. I can barely stand it as every moment that passes feels like an eternity. I wait and I watch for you. I hear your approach and it causes a tingle to pass over me entirely. I once told you that you make me shimmer. God I loved the look on your face when I told you that, and your mouth betrayed you with a subtle smile of complete satisfaction.
You pass through my door, and I shut it behind you. I turn my face up to yours, and time stands still as every molecule of air that I breathe in saturates every part of me. I breathe you in, I breathe life in. God how I love you. You are in every part of me. I have excluded you from nothing that I am. You are always there, in every part of me, so much so that I cannot separate myself from you. I don't know where I end and you begin.
We are in our world. It is the safest place on earth to me. It's where you and I are one, and no one interferes. We show ourselves to each other with joyful abandon. Precious pieces of time that compare to none other. You reach out to me and wrap yourself around me, and I feel as though I melt into you. The moment you touch your lips to mine is miraculous in every way. It is the highest of highs, and I am amazed every time. Every single time.
Clinging to each other, we make our way across the room. The anticipation of what is to come makes my heart beat a thousand times per minute. Maybe faster. Yes, I am sure it is faster. You are so strong and beautiful, and I freely give myself to you. As I stand there and look into your eyes, I cannot imagine a day in my life that you would not return to my arms. I told you once that you are my sweet man, and a blush came across your face. You told me that you are not sweet, and I said, ah, but you are to me. You make my soul sing.
