touch

in the secrecy of a darkening night under watchful eyes, a single feather light touch. i revel at the comfort but resist the urge to shiver. i lean into your touch, but pull away before we're caught. does the danger thrill us? excite us?

in the secrecy of a humid night under watchful eyes, a lingering hug on the stairwell. your hands on my hips, mine around your neck. your body warmth. your familiar scent. we don't want to separate, but still pull away before we're caught. why won't time stop for us? for love?

in the secrecy of a star filled night under watchful eyes, another hug before your mother's eyes. your arms around my waist, mine on your shoulders. head against your chest. bodies curving just right. i want to kiss you, but i pull away before we're caught. can't they see our devotion? our love?

in the secrecy of a lonely night under watchful eyes, i watch you leave my sight. missing your smile. your eyes. your touch. i want to call you back, but i walk away before we're caught. can't they see? don't they know?

we fit together so well, baby. you and i.

perfectly.
