Yes

You don't have to say
anything.

Just let me trace
the watercolor brushstroke
of your eyebrows
as your eyes close,
an answer
without words.

Pressed close
against your existence,
my mouth will read your lips
in braille.

  3. And my lips will respond
    Quivering against the soft fullness

    Drinking in this moment
    Breath suspended

    While the tips of your fingers
    Write a fugue on my skin...


    I hope you don't mind...I couldn't resist :)
