Speaking Volumes

Laying in your arms,
soft silk against my skin,
I turn to look at you, and you smile.
Your hands trace the curves of my body,
less impatiently than hours before;
and each touch brings back memories
to newly awakened flesh.
Whispers leave your lips, in hushed tones,
falling upon ears that have heard
the beating of your heart.
My lips touch upon your own,
quieting whispers,
silencing your tongue,
and ingesting the phrases
before they leave your mouth.
No longer a need for words,
we speak volumes in gentle caresses.
Our eyes and lips convey more
than mere syllables ever could.
There will be time for speaking later,
when I lie, spent, in your arms;
my body having told you things
my tongue could have never said.
And I will drift off to sleep,
as you whisper in my ear...
safe in the confines of your love.

Thank you, sometimes it is hard to do erotic and sensual and still be tasteful. I think this poem dances very close to the edge, twirling and spinning, but never crosses the line.
