Beside You

I lay awake next to you
Your body touching mine
I watch the rise and fall of your breathing
I gently place my hand on your chest
I feel the beating of your heart
My body becomes eager for your touch
I slide even closer to you
And begin to lightly kiss
Your check,
Your chin
Your warm lips
Your eyes open up and return the kiss
I taste your tongue
And feel your hands on my hips
The moment catches fire
And before I know it you’ve devoured me
Leaving me in passion’s bliss
And ready to sleep in your arms
