Shuffling carefully through the silent darkness
Blindly reaching out
Fear hones my remaining senses.
An unseen hand brushes my arm!
Paralyzed by terror
Conscious of each trembling breath
Deafened by my hammering heart
Is anyone there?
Hot breath titillates my neck!
A wave of heat surges through my body
A slow caress traces the line of my backbone!
Shivers of excitement fire along every nerve
Fear starts to fade
Invisible fingers run through my hair!
Terror turns to exhilaration
Bewildered by feathery kisses
Inducing escalating shocks of pleasure
Exquisitely conscious of each trembling breath
Undulating to the rhythm of my hammering heart
But still I wait
Vibrating with anticipation
Aching, longing for the next fleeting contact
Desperately afraid that each loving touch
May be the last.
