Pearl 5 – Intimacy

As partners we’ve
Smoothed life’s passage,
Together.

Time has strengthened us,
Forged an unbreakable bond
That survives temporary
Setbacks and upheavals
And allows us to sail
Through storms,
Together.

We are an enviable force.

And yet,
I still tremble at your hands
Running up and down my back
On my bare skin
As we lie together.
The intimacy of your touch
Makes me squirm with pleasure,
Transports me back
To our teenage years
When we first explored
Each other’s bodies,
Illicitly,
In darkened bedrooms
On rainy afternoons.

I loved you then,
I love you now.
