Tinder Love

Your fingers dance their way
up my spine,
waltzing footprints
on my skin,

echoing back
the “I love you’s”
breathed in dark rooms
between sweaty hands
and heaving hearts.

And I am undone,
among your midnight whispers
and clinging to the gravity of this.

I can feel your body shake 
as I run my lips over
every patch of pale,
trembling skin,
each stroke of my tongue
wandering toward hidden 

Your back arches in
fervent anticipation,
and we are one,
we are entirety
and in pieces
all at once,

begging for the heat
to melt us together,
to bind our souls,
to fit our puzzle-piece hearts
within infinity’s grasp,
matching our bodies’
desire to the design
of the universe –
all together and alone
all at once…

(This is a poetic collaboration between myself and Christopher Rupley. Please visit his blog, The Brown Bag Special, and read his other fantastic work.)
