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 plea to
'Touch me, hold me, love me' turning her head
To meet my lips, we kissed deeply as my eager
Fingers 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, ‘love me now, now, now...'
My head spun wildly, my heart was in my mouth,
God, I felt alive. Every inch of flesh I possessed
Tingled with raw energy, 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.
