Sound

The sound of your breath as you lie on the bed
The sound of your hair as you move your head
The sound of your legs as they move on the sheet
The sound of the cover as it slips off your feet

The sound that you made as you readied for bed
The sound of the brush in the hair on your head
The sound of your legs as they walk cross the floor
The sound of your clothes as they fall to the floor

The sound that you made as you washed in the bath
The sounds that we made as we kissed by the hearth
The sound of your legs as they carried you in
The sound of the kiss that I laid on your skin

The sound of your voice as we spoke on the phone
The sound of the words that asked “Are you alone”
The sound that we made as we parted this morn
The sound of your feet as they walked cross the lawn

The sound that we made as we woke up in bed
The sound that I made as I kissed your sweet head
The sound of the tea as you drank from the cup
The sound that we heard as the clock woke us up

But the sound I am waiting as I play back the day
Is the sound of your voice as you call me to play
The sounds we will make as we love in our bed
Are the sounds that will echo all night in my head

Author notes

There were some other sounds I couldn’t fit in, the bst of all is the sound of stockinged thighs gently rubbing…
