Hug (Redux)

When warm embrace

Becomes tight caress

Imprinted, skin on skin

Essential proximity

My face buried in you

As if you were oxygen

The need to clasp

To hold on tight

That abject hunger

Insatiable need

To inhale you

Drink

My fill

Devour

You.

Kiss (redux)

* Originally published elsewhere, a lifetime ago.

Stubble grazes skin, soft lips clustered

Background fades into itself, time stops

Held tight, strong, unyielding touch

Safe, secure, never to stop

Nothing else matters. Nothing exists

Save you. Save me. Save us.

Time freezes, alone together

In the moment.

Kiss.
