Your sigh

The gentle sigh you breathed inside my lips
Has told me all I need to know today
The wriggling that greets my fingertips
Suggests we both are in the mood for play

The teeth that hold my tongue to test and tease
Soon shift attention to my tingling skin
The arms and hands that hold me tight and squeeze
Have joined a game that you intend to win

As I explore the way your curves respond
To every little trick that I employ
You pull me to the edge and then beyond
My life with you is always filled with joy

I hope that you can hear my screaming heart
It’s telling you that we must never part
