What I want

with 6 comments

If you are asking…
what I
want…

Here.
In this moment…

Mostly
I want to laugh with you
way past midnight
in that space of time
before mornings greeting finds us
and last night’s passion
has exhausted us
after
you have claimed
every space of skin and
every nerve ending
I own
After
you have stretched me
past the point of beginning or ending

After that
I want to
laugh
with

my lover, my friend, my man.

  2. I love this one, Julie. Those moments after midnight sex, rolling up against one another, laughing, grunting and drifting off to sleep. Well said.

  3. Julie, glad you joined this website. Even a lady in her 63rd year remembers those sparks of passion and the after glow of wrapping our arms around each other and with a soft sweet kiss goodnight.
