The Taste Of Your Mouth

Updated on December 11, 2009

Did you look into my eyes

and feel my pulse,

the insistent throb of my Life.

Did your eyes brush past memories

and old pains

As you delved into the depths of me.

 

Did you grasp it hungrily

wanting the warmth?

As our fingertips touched for the first time.

Or like a slow moving snake,

did your own Spirit curl around

mine?

Embracing the hunger,

Succumbing to a sweet comfort.

As our lips found a way to join.

Did we genuflect,

heads bowed in submission

to a force greater than ourselves.

 

Warm skins moving against each other,

Waves on sand.

Lazy with slow touchings,

our passions pulled us down into the tide.

Washed away thought

as we flowed into the sea.

I remember the force of your arm,

the strength of your muscles

as you held on.

Beyond time,

Our lips created a world of their own.

 

Later.

 

So much later.

When you had gone.

 

The wind came and carried with it the taste of your mouth.

      OH MY OH MY...this touched me very deeply. "Or like a slow moving snake,did your own Spirit curl around mine?"- La Culebra...a mystical moving creature, and how you compared it to the emotion of two souls coiling together and fusing as one.....simply lovely! - JJ
