Delicate Intimacy

Form: Free Verse

Yards of liquid fabric
flowing over the skin like drapery
veiling what is to come
denying my eyes
yet enticing my mind
that is your intent
in tormenting seduction
crumpling the resistance of a man
not that I am resisting
but it is part of the game
and I am content to play
in the moment
it is what I want
to be in the moment with you
as the lucidity of silk
oozes through my fingers
tumbling around you
like a waterfall cascading into a pool
and I want to be in that moment
when our shadows descend
across the wall
and there are no seconds left to count
before you are mine
