a safe distance
I feel you draw near as I watch the stars move across the sky
and travel with them in light years of space and empty dreams.
your breath envelops me
drawing me back into the earthly realm.
music plays in a room of smoke and mirrors
and fills me with you.
we move to a rhythm that belongs to us
and your hands play my body.
fingers caress my breasts
and pull my clothes aside to touch flesh
made sensitive by your very existence.
my wanting place is suddenly revealed.
your fingers stroke and press
drawing forth wild spasms that call you even closer.
you sway with me
in the music of my heart
and bring me to love....
more love than I can bear.
let me travel back to the stars.
I am safe there
in the solitude of the twirling galaxies.
looking from a distance
at lands of longing
and your beautiful face.
