Beyond The Embrace

We’ve taken
Our time
With this romance,

Fully respecting
The value,
And importance
Of one another…

This isn’t
A bar or
Club created

At this point
In our lives,
There’s too much
At risk,
And too much
To gain.

But tonight,
We’ve arrived
At a different destination…


I can feel it
In you,

And I suspect that
You can
Feel it
In me,

Both of us
Willing for
Next steps.

Are you sure
Of yourself?

Are you sure
Of us?

I sense anticipation,
And trepidation
In your eyes.

Don’t get me wrong…

I have fantasized
About this moment,

This night,

For so long.

To explore
And taste
The very,
And total essence,
Of you,

Have my heart and mind,

And blood pressure

But despite,
The thrusting
And urgency
Of our
Mutual needs…

Know this.


After a night
Of beautiful,
And warm,
And deep,
And sensual

We will be
In a different
Consummated place,

With our hearts

For you…

And you,
For me.

Worry not.

Beyond this night,

Beyond the physical,

Beyond the emotional…

Beyond the embrace…

Awaits something perfect,

Something beautiful…

Something forever.
