While you slowly read the last chapter
I see your grin
You are waiting too
But waiting is good
You turn a page
And turn back
I look at your naked breast and wait.
Another page, I study the shape of your chin
You flick your tongue over your lips
Stretched on my pillow I see you read
Eventually you close your book
Turn off the light
We are turned on…

Here is the rhyming version. I’d love to know how they compare in other people’s eyes.
