A late night swim
Just you and me
Silently slicing through the lake
Smooth strokes in unison
Moving together in perfect rhythm
Moonlight shimmers the surface
The cool night air refreshes after a long, hot day
Only the sound of crickets chirping
And the splashes of our arms and legs
To break the stillness
Our clothes in a heap on the bank
We are so free.
Always swimming together
If I tire, you tread water
You wait for me like I wait for you
When we get in too deep,
And our toes don't touch,
Fear sets in for just a moment.
But I am there for you and you are there for me.
As it will always be.
As we approach the shore to dry and dress
We stop shoulder deep for one last wet embrace.
We kiss deeply and passionately.
Our bodies pressed together
Nipples stiff from the cold water, cool air,
And the anticipation of what comes next.
At this moment, there is nowhere else I would rather be.
