Footsteps

That fresh scent that
Lingers on your skin
After you shower
Draws me to you still.

I want to bury my face
In your chest and inhale deeply—

Become intoxicated again and again.
And suddenly I am back to those
Wild days, wild nights—

Our love was wild then.
Like a little wild creature
Discovering a favorite food,
I discovered you—

There was never a question of
Overindulgence for either of us.
How quickly time flew.

Work became a necessary annoyance.
Joy sprang like flowers
In your footsteps—

Footsteps of you coming
Home to me.

    Lasting relationships are becoming scarce these days. It sounds like you've found a wonderful one... This was such a passionate write, Connie. So beautifully expressed!

    A lovely and excellence write, I like how penned it and the imagery, at times something or someone unexpected can evokes something of the past, which you have not even think of it just for once before ......A.M.
