I’ll Take My Coffee with a Side of You.

coffee, sip, amalie,

My hair falls softly

Caressing the curves of my shoulder

The smell of coffee runs up the stairs to greet you

Hummingbirds hover

Saying soft hellos the flowers woven upon my balcony

 

I press the French down slowly

Letting the grains resist my urgency

Just milk, he says.

Pitter patter falls the rain

Jose Gonzalez fills the kitchen

 

My denim shirt falls open

Carelessly buttoned

I shiver

The sun has not yet reached my cabin

The logs still hold the night

 

The rain falls gently, then fast.

Like Mother Nature’s finger tips

Drumming away on the roof

Where did the inside sheet run off to?

I pull you close

 

We are too tangled to start a fire

Drinking each others’ body heat

Murmuring nonsensical romance

Nine days? It can’t be.

 

The creek beside my cabin rushes wildly

Tormented by the rain

A wood pecker drills away in the distance

All I feel is your lips drift upon my spine

 

My soul curls

Gasps in sweet delight

Tightens itself

And lets go into the abyss

Strength within surrender

 

Kissing away hours

Finger tips glide between thighs

Pillows astray

As we meet between the sheets

 

I find your mouth

Again and again

And again.

 

He leaves fresh cut wildflowers on every window sill

purple lilies on the doorstep

whittles the day away

palms full of splinters

my heart warms quietly in my chest

can one eat kisses?

 

I’m starving for your lips

and they just left mine.
