22/06/2016: Him, Her, Then

(Warning: vaguely sexual content)

1. Him

he runs his fingers

along the round of her hip

finding the dip of her waist

the softness of her arm

the curve of her shoulder

and traces the pattern again,

like a map that tells him

where all the answers lie.

smiling, she turns onto her stomach –

“don’t judge me”

she says

“i won’t”

he replies,

and doesn’t –

his eyes are too busy

following the dimple of her spine up her back

his fingers tracing tiny patterns only he knows

into the softness of her skin.

2. Her

she smiles at him

eyes hungrily tracing along

the sharpness of his cheekbones

the line of his nose

the deepness of his eyes

as if she could stare all day

and still not stare enough.

she rolls onto her stomach –

“don’t judge me”

she says

“i won’t”

he replies

and she starts twining her fingers

around each other

aware of his touch on her body

of electricity running through her veins

of his heat close by

and she turns her head suddenly

to press an open-mouthed kiss to his lips.

3. Him

she turns her head suddenly

to press an open-mouthed kiss to his lips

and it’s like dancing,

following her body,

the steps she leads

forehead against forehead

hands on hips and shoulders

teeth in neck and ears and lips

his eyes –

dark and deep

her eyes –

bright and fluid –

and he gasps soft epithets into her waiting hair.

4. Her

He gasps soft epithets into her waiting hair

and she hisses his name into his neck

and her nails leave scratches on his back

and they feel like two halves –

no, that’s not right –

two pieces thatĀ almostĀ fit,

as close as anything can,

because perfection would be dull

in a world as lovingly imperfect as this

and she bites his shoulder and feels him shudder

5. Then

she bites his shoulder and feels him shudder

and he holds her tight to him, gasping.

then, they fall apart, in pieces, or together,

and morning finds them curled around each other

like two missing pieces of a whole.
