In my veins, I feel it.
The velvet that runs deep.
My thought are often crowded,
But you open me up with ease.
The rhythmic hammering in my chest,
takes flight when you're around.
A unyielding elation showers me,
My body begins to shake.
Your head is moving closer,
And our hands are interlocked.
Your voice is simmering at the tip of your tongue,
And I breathe in something hot.
You're perfect, he whispers.
I listened with intent.
His palms were getting sweaty,
And his breathing began to even.
Sorry, I whisper to myself.
A instant flood of guilt.
Discreetly, I rise and gain composure,
As I peep at your face.
Sound asleep I leave you,
Peaceful and carefree.
I know that you are dreaming,
And I hope it's about me.
