Bliss at Sunset

Updated on December 11, 2012

In your arms I lay

as a moth in its cocoon,

waiting for the spring,

safe from the cold and wind of winter;

Your soft breath warming my back,

your gentle arms around me

protecting my heart.

I turn and taste

the silky hollow of your throat.

My fingers caress

the soft lines of your neck,

tingling in the electric air

that surrounds this heated nest

born of our truth

You inhale sharply,

the only rapid movement

in the rising waves

on our ocean of ecstasy.

You exhale, slow and deep,

a sigh escaping your lips

proclaiming your bliss.

Almost no sound is heard,

into one symphony of senses,

our sprits melt.

Leaving behind our bodies,

we heed no more than the roar

of our splendid colors,

running from the sun.
