Vow of Silence

Silence surrounds me
Smoke curling out my nostrils
Inhaling your words
Left me breathless
No matter
They are oxygen to my lungs
Slipping my fingers lower
I’ll write your name there
Just like I’ll use my tongue
To sign my name along your thighs
There’s poetry written across your clavicle
And beneath my breasts
Hushed sighs
Shout in my ear
Tell me you love me
You already stole my breath away
I fainted for your touch
Infuse me now
Break my vow of silence

  1. Such wonderful sensuality and passion; throbbing need and quivering want, but a deeper sense, a deeper love; affection, calming, damning, beautiful; dark and heavy, like a scent lingering in the air. Wonderful. Just wonderful.
