Skin to Skin. {Adult Poem}

couple love sleep hug bed

Sleepily snoozing

Your chest to my back,

Right arm tucked around me

Pulling me close.

Your hardness pressing

Against my softness,

My wetness

Is soon to be—

But not yet.


Always first to awaken,

I lie waiting

For you to start stirring.

I slowly breathe you in,

Savoring your presence

And our skin to skin contact.


This simple pleasure

Will never grow old.

I would delight to behold

You at my back each morning—

If it were so.


What a joy it would be if,

Instead of fantasy,

This new moon wish

Became my reality.

And so, as I lie here alone,

I offer it to the Moon Goddess

And wait patiently

For you to appear in my life,

In my bed…

For you to come to (and with) me.
