·Ꮽ•Ꭶ•Ꮾ· just a glance ·Ꮽ•Ꭶ•Ꮾ·


even after so many years
it’s still a surprise

this passion you elicit
with just a glance


when you look at me

my body trembles
from the heat of your desire
coursing through me


in the space of  a single breath

the love in your eyes
caresses me tenderly
to the bottom of my soul


and the happiness we share
overpowers me

my need for you never more than now

i am…..       forever yours
