I know you
I see us making love
It just happens.
Nothing to prompt it.
My mind wanders off
on its own
and I imagine.
I know, somehow,
what you would feel like
held in my arms.
I know what it would be like
to make love to you.
In the soft glow of the morning light
I can taste the salt on your skin
and you scent is familiar to me.
I donít know you and yet,
I've known you all my living life.
I know the way you smile
I know the treasured tremors
you feel when I run my fingertips
along your thigh and waist.
The delicate weight of your breast
cupped in my hand,
as we enjoy
The innocent delights
of spoons under cover.
Yes, I know you well
I've known you before
this fleshy existence.
You and I have held each other,
as the sun set in the spring
We have kissed,
under the first snows of winter.
Our lips are well versed
in the intimate ballet
of the wet soul rendered,
of love lost and gained
and lost again.
I am sure that my fingers
have combed through
the soft, thickened curls
that caress your naked shoulders.
I know what the press of your body
feels like against mine.
I know the heat that bleeds
off of your skin
as I start to kiss and touch
I remember the sweet glossy
slip of the union
and the way you wrap
your arms and legs around me
I can easily recall
the hitched breath
the soft cooing of you
my love, my lover.
I know you in the moment
the jolt of the sweet pain
the torrent of the guilty pleasures
the heart stopping crash
of love and lovers.
I know you.
Gentle and tender in the afterglow
The whispered caresses,
the playful nibbles and tight embraces.
Your eyes lit in the afternoon sun
Your smile burned forever in my mind
Your name forever on my lips
And yet never quite escaping.
I know you.
I know you well.

I know you
LOL... Actually I have read most of Nae's poetry and I am pretty sure that she reads my stuff as well. I am glad that you liked it. I was wondering whether or not it was going to get approved.
I am glad that it did.

LOL... I wonder if most women have some sort of ESP. We were just talking about you Nae. Glad that you liked the poem. I really liked the spoon lines too...

I Know You...
I am seriously blushing... Thank you all... wow.
I did not expect this kind of response. So very humbling. Thank you.

I read this slack-jawed, almost unbelieving at its specificity and utter deliciousness. I wasn't sure I'd want to read all the way to the end, but you worded it in a way that kept my eyes glued to the screen, yet did not offend. Incredible. I wouldn't change a thing about it. Not a thing.

I know You now....
No problem. I was concerned that it might be too risque but I tried and was pleasantly surprised that I have managed to keep the tone just under the no-no radar.

I know you....
This is more than I ever expected to receive as a response... wow.
I knew it! Women DO have ESP! LOL. Nae is one of the folks that always find the time to comment on my poetry. As for passing under the radar, I was really trying to find a few different ways to describe the intimacy. Words really can't do intimacy justice. It is always something that is better felt than read but I am really happy with what I was able to pen.

Thank you. I am glad I was able to skirt the line without really being offensive. I really enjoyed the wordplay for this poem. It was a lot of fun to write.

I don't know about being a master... but coming from you it is high praise indeed.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments! I really am glad I shared it now... LOL
