I caught a buzz off your touch
Alone, at the end of the day
I wanted to go back and make it last a little longer.
We hiked up to a lookout at a lake. I was winded, sweaty and embarrassed by the time we reached the top.
Shielded by the trees, you knew them all
On a wooden bench, my head thrown back in delight in the sun
The birds are chirping and we can hear the interstate
Your hand tracing my sun kissed shoulder, my scarred tattoo, my inner thigh.
I’m on my knees resting in the pebbles as you give yourself to me
Your hand on the back of my head, feeling through my hair
But this can end at any moment
For any reason
So I will not hold on too tight
It may slip between my fingers if I do
