Welcome to My Poetry Site
Heaven on earth
We held each other for a long time before
Either dared to speak, and when I tried she
Put a finger to my lips driving her lower body
Fiercely into mine. She needed love tonight and
So did I, we'd been apart too long and there
Was a pressing need to catch up.
I ran the back of my hands lightly down her
Bare arms, and she responded with a whispering
'Touch me, hold me, love me' turning her head
To meet my lips. We kissed deeply as my eager
Hands toured her voluptuous jewel of a body,
Leaning back into me in the moonlight begging to
Be taken, taken right now, this very minute, this
Very second, let no time pass,' her body cried,
'Do it now, now, now, for love is of the essence.'
My head spun wildly, my heart was in my mouth,
God, I felt alive. Every inch of flesh I possessed
Tingled with anticipation. A climax of being from
Which my giddy soul rejoiced bursting from my
Body to plunged back in again like a lightning bolt,
Sending my senses reeling. Where was I, how
Had I got here, was this what Adam first savoured?
I felt sure it was for nothing on God's earth could be
More perfect, more thrilling, than to love a woman
Who wants to be loved. Surely one of the finest day's
Work in God's considerable portfolio.
Her arms held on to me as I laid her down clinging
Tightly unwilling to let me go. She drew me hard
Into her and for the moment the only movement
Possible was the only movement that mattered,
Slow, deep and rhythmic, soon however, the pace
Wet, exhausted and tired she fell asleep and lay
In my arms until long after sun up. I watched her
As she slowly stirred and opened her eyes and
I knew then as those beautiful eyes smiled into
Mine that there was another treasure in God's
Portfolio - Heaven on earth.
