"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is
made up of."

-- Bruce Lee


Your lips on mine,
Shivers down my spine,
A smile stretching across my mouth,
Your hand slowly heading south.

I grasp and pull up on your fingers,
On my stomach allowing them to linger,
Your soft lips caressing my own
I find myself suppressing a moan.

Down your back my hands are sliding
Not requiring directions or guiding
Electricity crackling skin against skin,
Too soon we’ll break apart again.

“I’ve gotta go home,” I reluctantly say.
I let your lips argue, I want to be swayed.
A love drunk smile on your lips
I place your hands on my hips.

Your muscles flex under my touch,
I’ve never felt this kind of rush;
I feel your lips pressed against my neck
And I know from here there’s no turning back.

“I’ve gotta go,” I reluctantly repeat.
You hear that I mean it and turn up the heat.
Harder, faster, pressing closer than ever
Wild and reckless, now or never.

We break apart and I find your eyes
We do not speak or say goodbye.
I turn away with a smile and know that soon
We will secretly meet again, under the moon.

Aw thanks :) Everyone who has ever been in love can remember those passionate moments, and even if that relationship ended badly, hopefully you can still appreciate those memories.

Entirely your own love poem, sometimes I find love poems to be very much like others, but this, no. This poem is unique and filled with an intensity and passion that rushes out and bursts at me.  Lovely descriptions once again.

Alex...oh my gosh! You totally described me and him living a forbidden love he's my Romeo and I only hope I'm his Juliet. This poem was absolutely beautiful "A smile stretching across my mouth/Your hand slowly heading south./I grasp and pull up on your fingers,/On my stomach allowing them to linger..." It's like you described my whole life haha This is probably my favorite poem of yours ever now because I can relate to every sentence, every word - having to go home but him not wanting me to because who knows when we're going to see eachother again?....

Perfection.
