sleep is playing keep away
from my tired eyes
i won’t complain though
because even the best dream
will never measure up
to my memories of you
enveloping me
in your embrace
your eager hands up
and down my back
in my hair
even (and this was breathtaking)
on my face
your lips
soft and questioning
at first
as if to ask
is this okay?
then, within a matter of breaths
we became two parched souls
our thirst for each other
only quenched by
one more kiss
trembling (at least i was)
we forced ourselves apart
but as you know
this didn’t last long
