CAN WE NOT JUST...


Can we not just - sleep
babe, please don't move
I feel so close to you

My head upon your chest
bodies entwined
arms around you
embracing your heart
your heart
still pounding
so feverishly
so hypnotic
as I fall
I fall
into
you

I feel the blood
coursing your veins
the soft rise of
you breast
the moistness
of sweet breath
slowing
slowing
calling
.......
.....
...
.

Babe, please don't move
can we not just - sleep...
I want to lay like this
forever

*sigh*...
temps on the rise in passions...
very tender and sweet M, very nice
take care, jm

 Now for me some words come easy
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch
You never knew what I loved in you
I don't know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be
